Rose Marie Farnsworth was born on January 30, 1921 in Bunkie, Louisiana. She quietly passed away on March 24, 2011. She was predeceased by her husband, Richard and her three sisters and four brothers. She is survived by her three daughters, Regina Griggs, Rose Holland and Richelle Lordanich; eight grandchildren; and fifteen great-grandchildren. Rose moved to California when she was about 14 years old and attended Banning High School. After high school she attended junior college where she majored in English. Her first secretarial job was at Harbor Hospital. It was there that she met her husband. In 1957 she went to work for Torrance Unified School District where she retired after 30 years later. Although she worked at several schools throughout the district she will be most remembered for her time at Torrance High School where she worked in the counseling office. Any student sent to their counselor was greeted with a kind sympathetic smile. She was an advocate for all the students but, the ones who got in trouble always held a special place in her heart. She often took students under her wing and let them "work" for her to attain much needed credits. The students recognized her several years as "Miss Steno" in their year-end awards and she also received an award from the PTA. She loved her family and community. It would take her hours to go to Lucky Market because she had so many friends. For the past twelve years she has lived at the Huntington Retirement Hotel where she became good friends with the residents and staff. Services will be held at Gamby's Mortuary on Thursday, March 31. A rosary will be prior to the service at 10:30 a.m. and the service will begin at 11:00 a.m. Interment to follow at Calvary Cemetery in East Los Angeles. Please sign the guestbook at
