Rose Marie Hosmer

May 30, 2022 Sweet, Smart and Sure to Make You Laugh

Rose Marie (Moore) Hosmer, age 96, passed peacefully on Monday, May 30th, 2022. She was visited by family that afternoon. She resided at Sunrise of Westtown for eight years, until recently moving to Fair Acres. Both facilities provided her with a warm, loving “home”. She always said, “I have no complaints”.

She was born in Quantico, VA, her father being in the military. She met her husband, the late Elbridge Hosmer, at a USO dance in Miami. After he returned from service in WWII, they settled in Vineland, NJ until 1963 when they moved to Ridley Park, PA.

Rose loved to garden and cook, her coleslaw was excellent, the secret ingredient was pickle juice. She was an avid reader and always kept up with world events. She had a great sense of humor and made people laugh with her quick-witted quips. She was truly a sweet person whom everyone loved.

Rose is predeceased by her husband and adopted daughter, one brother and one sister. She is survived by 4 nieces and 1 nephew.

Funeral services are private.

Arrangements are made by Kuzo Funeral Home of Kennett Square, PA.

Message from the Family

Rose and Elbridge together on their first date





  1. Rose Marie was such a sweetheart! I do remember giving care to her at Sunrise of Westtown when I was briefly there! Her and Babs got along as thick as thieves and always wanted to be together- that was so amazing to watch! She was the kindest soul and will be missed!
