Obituary of Rosemary Ann Cameron

Rosemary Ann Cameron, 73, of Kings Head Nova Scotia, passed away peacefully at home on January 17, 2021 with family by her side; following a year and half battle with cancer which she faced with determination and grace. Rosemary was born in Quebec City to Frank and Dorothy Simpson. She took Education at MacGill University, MacDonald Campus where she also met the love of her life and husband Don. She began her teaching career and taught in Quebec for a year before Don and Rosemary married in 1969. Together they moved to Sunny Cove Farm in Egerton where Rosemary continued her teaching career in Nova Scotia. They had three children who Rosemary lovingly devoted her life to raising and supporting them until her last days. She was also a committed grandmother who was affectionately known by her grandsons as “Gran” and her only granddaughter as “Gaga”. The pride she had for her grandchildren could be felt by all. Rosemary and Don loved to travel together and had many wonderful experiences and adventures together, visiting their grandchildren in Sweden and spending time in their winter escape in Florida. Rosemary had a deep love for painting and enjoyed viewing and researching art as well as creating her own beautiful pieces. She was thrilled with the new design for The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and had hoped to live long enough to see it built. She loved to play Bridge but enjoyed the company of her “Glam Girls” as much as she cherished the game. She had long lasting friendships that were deeply important to her. Rosemary was always active and loved being outside, walking, kayaking, spending time with her family on the water, working in her gardens and swimming with her grandchildren in the pool. Rosemary is survived by her loving husband of 51 years Don. Children, Natalie (Glenn) Karlsson, David (Sarah) Cameron, Christine (Andrew) Williams.
