Rosemary Mildred Eisterhold, daughter of Leo and Helena (Meurer) King, was born January 29, 1931 in Adams, Minnesota. She was baptized and confirmed at Sacred Heart Church, Adams, Minnesota, and attended Sacred Heart School and later Adams High School where she graduated in 1949.

On August 25, 1956, she became the bride of Ambrose Eisterhold at Sacred Heart Church, Adams, MN. Five children were born to this union, James, Mark, Lawrence, Thomas and Ann. Rosemary was a skilled line-o-type operator at a time when most operators were men. With her husband, they published the Adams Review newspaper for some six years before reverting to her dedication as a devoted wife, mother, and homemaker. Starting in 1964, her husband's career in electronics and computers took them to Ashland, MA; Slidell, LA; and Houston, TX where they have made their home since 1968. She served her church in many ways and was especially fond of her "Ladies of St. Leo's" friends that worked with her. She was never one to put on airs. She would work lovingly and tirelessly to get the job done. Her children and grandchildren were a special pride and pleasure to her. She loved people and had numerous friends.

She passed away Sunday, April 21, 2002, at her home in Houston having reached the age of 71 years, 2 months, and 22 days. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by two brothers, Ray and Jerome, one brother-in-law, Henry Runde, and several nephews and nieces.
