Our beloved mother, Rosemary B. Jennings, 88, lifelong resident of Indianapolis, entered eternal life on the morning of May 8, 2013.

Rosemary was a devout charter member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church, where she was an active volunteer. She also volunteered at Community Hospital East and the Little Sisters of the Poor. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family at her lake house. Holidays were special for large family gatherings.
