Rosemary Campbell Glover, 91, passed away peacefully with her family by her side, on Tuesday, April 30, 2019. She was born December 30, 1927, in Dumas, Arkansas, the daughter of James Richmond Campbell and Anna Melinda Cramer Campbell.
Rosemary spent her childhood in Dumas. She became a Christian in her youth and was baptized at First Baptist Church of Dumas. After graduating from Dumas High School, she entered Arkansas Baptist Nursing Program and graduated a registered nurse. It was at this time when she met the love of her life, Roy Henry Glover, Jr. and they were married on June 28, 1948. After Roy completed his military service they established their home in North Little Rock. During her career as a nurse, Rosemary worked at the Baptist Hospital in Little Rock and Fort Roots Veterans Hospital in North Little Rock. She retired at age 50 to spend time with her growing family.
Rosemary was a long-time member of Sylvan Hills Community Church in North Little Rock where she and Roy worshiped and served. “Rosie”, as she was known and loved by family and friends, was a wonderful cook and was blessed with the gift of hospitality. Their home was always filled with family and friends, great food and funny stories. Many will treasure the memory of Rosie in her kitchen talking and laughing with those she loved. She had a unique way with her contagious smile and a twinkle in her eye to let you know that you were special and treasured by her.
Rosemary is preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, Roy, her parents, James and Anna Campbell, and siblings Betty Sanderson, Virginia Johnson, James Campbell, Jr., Merle Trussell, Helen Leftwich, and Kitty Glover.
