Rosemary Ann Behrends

September 29, 1959 — June 20, 2021

Rosemary (Rosie) Ann Behrends, died on Sunday, June 20, 2021 at the I.O.O.F. Home in Mason City, IA, after a long hard battle with cancer.  She was 61 years of age.

Rosemary was born September 29, 1959 in Albert Lea, MN, the daughter of Russell and Marsha (Christopherson) Behrends.  She was a graduate of Albert Lea High School.  Rosemary was a member of Our Saviors Lutheran Church.

Rosemary loved to play Bingo, crafting, crocheting, playing cards, and especially spending time with anybody she could.  She was Josh and Laynee’s biggest fan and loved to attend their hockey games when she could.  Rosie was always smiling when she was with family and friends and had the ability to transfer her smile to anyone she was with!
