RoseMarie Stegman

RoseMarie Stegman, loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and dedicated Cincinnati Reds fan, passed away on December 11, 2023, at the age of 86 in her home in Greenhills, Ohio. Born on April 10, 1937, in Palmerton, Pennsylvania, RoseMarie lived a life filled with love, family, and cherished memories.

RoseMarie found her soulmate in Gerald Stegman, and they shared a beautiful union of 65 years. They first crossed paths in a men’s clothing store shortly after Gerald returned from serving overseas. It was love at first sight, and they walked hand in hand through all of life’s adventures. RoseMarie’s commitment and devotion to her husband never wavered, proving that true love indeed lasts a lifetime.

Family meant everything to RoseMarie, who took pride in being a devoted mother to her daughters, Patricia Musgrove, and Janet Watson. She also adored her grandchildren, Irene Musgrove, Larry Musgrove, Bobby Watson III, and Geneva Watson, who brought immense joy into her life. RoseMarie was even blessed with the presence of her great-grandchildren, Emma Watson, Genesis Hendrix, and Tsyler Hendrix, who brought an extra sparkle to her eyes.

In addition to her loving nature and dedication to her family, RoseMarie was known for her artistic flair. She had a knack for crafting and delighted in making homemade cards for her loved ones. She also enjoyed sharing her passion for crafting with her granddaughters, passing down the gift of creativity to future generations. She also enjoyed painting and made several memorable things that will continue to be cherished.

Cooking and baking were among RoseMarie’s favorite pastimes. She was renowned for her mouthwatering eye of the round roast, chili and deviled eggs which was a family favorite during holiday gatherings. Her culinary skills extended beyond the kitchen, as she loved exploring new places and cuisines during her travels. RoseMarie had the opportunity to visit remarkable destinations, such as Devil’s Tower, where she relished the breathtaking views alongside her beloved husband, Gerald. They also had memorable adventures at Mount Rushmore and were awestruck by the majestic Redwood trees of California, which they walked a mile and a half to witness. RoseMarie’s travels often included reuniting with friends from her husband’s Marine days, creating treasured memories that would last a lifetime.

A compassionate woman with a warm heart, RoseMarie leaves behind a legacy of love and kindness. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
