On May 4, 1974, she was united in marriage to John Glasgow.

Rose Mary was an outgoing and active member of many community organizations, including Days for Girls, Dress a Girl Around the World and several craft and knitting groups. She spent many years participating in bowling leagues and playing Bocce ball. Rose Mary was a proud grandmother and enjoyed hearing about the many activities of each of her grandkids.
