BERGIN ROSEMARY DOWSEY born November 12, 1922, passed away April 10, 2013. Born in Iron River, Michigan to Blanche Bertrand and Walter Dowsey, one of six children. Raised in the Upper Peninsula, father a cement contractor, mother a spirited housewife. Schooled in Iron River, Ferris Institute, and later the University of Michigan. Served in Women's Army corps to rank of Technical Sergeant after which she went to the U of M, graduating with a major in Speech Therapy. Taught in a field which was always a joy to her in the Plymouth, Northville, and South Lyon Schools. Her devoted husband, Bernard, to whom she was married on Feb. 21, 1952, predeceased her in 1973, and she finished raising her six youngest children while teaching in the South Lyon Schools, until retiring in 1986. Upon retiring, she was able to do the volunteering, for which there had been too little time in earlier years. She gave 12 years to being a monitor with Recordings for the Blind and Dyslexic, many years to delivering Meals on Wheels, 27 years acting as a weekly volunteer at Kerrytown Concert House in Ann Arbor where she delighted in learning about the behind-the-scenes operations of the Concert House while enjoying music and the people who made it so available to the community. Throughout her long and much enjoyed life, she was a volunteer at her parish Church, St. Joseph's in South Lyon, also serving on numerous commissions, teaching catechism classes, and becoming the first woman lector in her parish and continuing in the role for years. Her great delight in life was her large and enthusiastic family of eight children: Polly (Ron) Kufner, Joe, Julie (John) Milowe, Greg, Steve (Kaori), Ted (Lorain), Dan and Peter (Carol) and her much loved 21 grandchildren. Her faith was always important in all that she did and was a factor in everything that she undertook. She truly enjoyed life and tried to spread that joy to all those she met. Visitation will be at Phillips Funeral Home in South Lyon on April 14, Sunday, from 3:00 8:00 p.m. Funeral mass will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church in South Lyon on April 15, Monday, at 10:30 a.m. with Rev.
