Early on the morning of Oct. 31, 2019, Rosemarie Banda Adams took her last breath in the comfort of her home. Born July 31, 1965, in Calexico, Calif., she spent most of her adult life in the Bay Area and earned a degree in Criminal Justice from Cal State East Bay.
Rosemarie eventually started a family with her husband of 28 years Raymond Adams in Livermore. Together they welcomed two children, Joshua Ray and Hope Marie.
To all those who knew her, Rose was a warm and welcoming person whose laugh never failed to light up a room. Her love for her children was endless, and she will be fondly remembered for her time as a librarian and the beaded socks her daughter wore to school. Her friends will remember long coffee dates, run ins at Target, or collaborating with Rose in her sewing room full of craft necessities. A fiercely loyal friend Rose will be missed by those who walked through this journey with her, and all those who knew her.
To celebrate the life of Rosemarie there will be a service at St. Michael Catholic Church in Livermore starting at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 15. There will be a small gathering at the Adams family home after the service.
