Dearing, Rosemary

Rosemary Dearing passed away May 6, 2019 in Dallas, Texas from complications of ovarian cancer. Rosemary was born in Detroit, Michigan January 12, 1936. She graduated from Dominican High School in 1954 and went to work in the mortgage industry, where she would enjoy a 42 year career. In 1955 she married Leonard Kawecki and they welcomed a daughter, Linda Susan, in 1957. Rosemary and Leonard later divorced and she married Richard Dearing in 1964.

The family moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1968 and resided there until 1988 when Rosemary and Richard opted for a change of scenery to Charlotte, North Carolina. In 1996, they moved to Dallas, Texas to be close to their grandchildren. After Richard passed away, Rosemary moved to the independent living at CC Young, where she discovered a new world of activities and friendships. She often spoke of how kind all the residents and staff of CC Young were.

Rosemary never met a stranger and was blessed by many lifelong friends all across the country. She will be remembered for her generosity and gift of gab.

Rosemary was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Dearing. She is survived by daughter, Linda Susan Kawecki, son-in-law D. Michael Hellinghausen, and grandchildren Mathilde Beryl Hellinghausen, Paul Michael Hellinghausen, and Adam Daniel Hellinghausen.

Rosemary and I met when I began working at a savings & loan in Ft. Lauderdale in the late 60's. She and Dick were dear friends from the beginning of our friendship. She gave a baby shower for me when I became pregnant with our first child in 1970, and even though we both moved to different areas of the country later on, we were always visiting and talking by phone. I will miss her wonderful family stories, and her unique laugh. May she rest in peace always, with Dick beside her. Suzanne & R.J. Ogren, Chicago, IL

The line 'Rosemary never met a stranger' makes me smile. I always admired how she and Dick just up and moved to help take care of their grandchildren. Nick says, 'he enjoyed her enthusiasm for following one of her favorite European Bands.' We always laughed together. We had a lot in common-sharing time with friends and family, food, music and dare I say The Hallmark Channel Movies! I became a Grandmother this year and she will be an inspiration.
