Rosemary Spears Church Lee, born Dec. 26, 1922, in Kansas City, Missouri, was called back to her heavenly home Aug. 30, 2018, at age 95.
Rosemary was the middle child of William Everett Spears and Vera Isadore Pearce. Rosemary served a mission in Chicago, Illinois, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where she met her first husband, Warren Church.
Warren contracted a disease in the mission field and passed away just three years after their marriage. Rosemary later met and married Richard Morgan Lee, and they had one son, Kevin Richard Lee.
Rosemary was very active in her church, serving in many capacities as well as actively serving in her community. She worked for many years at Zion’s Bank, a job she loved. She and her husband served two LDS missions to Nauvoo, Illinois. That was a highlight of her life and was spoken of often in their home.
She is survived by her husband, Richard of Hurricane, and son Kevin (Kris) Lee of Jackson, Wyoming; her sisters Jane Cooley and Sylvia Spears; grandchildren Stacy (Mike) Allen, Hana (Morgan) McCain, Levi (Stacie) Scott, Raliegh (Sharyl) Scott and 10 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, stepmother, two sisters and two brothers.
