Rosemary K. Dorrance, 76, was called to her heavenly home on May 15th, 2022. She was born on September 23, 1945 and welcomed into this mortal life as the fourth child of R.L. and Jean Kilcrease. Rosemary and her siblings, Keith, Diane, Bryan, Steve, Susan, Mark and Mitch, enjoyed their childhood growing up in the tight-knit community of Dragerton, Utah.
Rosemary had a strong love for her family and would take every chance she could to spend time with her beloved grandchildren, siblings, and sons.
Rosemary was a 1963 graduate of Price High School. She was an active participant in her Christian congregation where she built a strong spiritual foundation and connection to God. Rosemary’s unfaltering faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ was the foundation of her life.
Being a full time mother was her priority raising two sons, Martin and Shannon. She raised her two boys as a single mother working for First Security Bank and then Wells Fargo and won many awards over her years of service. She retired in 2010 and enjoyed spending time with family, friends, and her dog Bella. Rosemary volunteered at the Road Home Pantry helping the homeless and those in need.
Above all, Rosemary prioritized her passion and love for family and the unique talents, interests and characteristics of each family member. Her influence spread far and wide through the years; she had a talent of maintaining relationships with those whose lives she touched.
Life looks different without Rosemary, but she has left an indelible print in every life and upon every heart of those she loved and those who loved her.
Rosemary is survived by her sons Martin Dorrance, and Shannon Dorrance nine grandchildren: Hayden (Madison), Riley, Bailey, Mitch (Nicole), Jonah, Tyler, Sydney and Max, and her great granddaughter Scarlett Mae (Hayden and Madison)
