Rosemary Murphy

October 25, 1949 - May 18, 2022

Rosemary Ann Murphy (Yoch) aged 72 of East Stroudsburg, PA  passed away on May 18, 2022 after sepsis complications and heart failure in Norfolk, VA. She was surrounded by her loved ones as she passed quietly. Rosemary was born on October 25, 1949 to Allan Yoch  and Alverta Yoch (Miller) in East Stroudsburg, PA and lived in the area her entire life. She is survived by her sister Glydia McKeegan and predeceased by her brother Richard Campeotto and sister Theresa Yoch. She and her siblings were raised in Stroudsburg, PA and all also remained in the area with their own families. She graduated Stroudsburg High School as a member of the Class of 1966. She went on to have three children, Robert L. Adams, Roy A. Adams, and Brandee L. Murphy. Robert and his spouse Stacey live in Paddock Lake, Wisconsin with their four children; Jacob, Jared, Jonathan and Jillian. Roy and his spouse LeeAnn live in East Stroudsburg, PA with their two children Skyler and Sierra. Brandee lives in Williamsburg, VA with her two children Rose and Ariel. She was very family oriented, and spent most all of her time enjoying her grandchildren.

Rosemary was known for her wit and sense of humor; always sincere and caring. She was a genuine listener who remained selfless throughout her life. She was very supportive of Veterans’ groups and was long affiliated with the Stroudsburg Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 2540, and the East Stroudsburg American Legion Post 346. Her loving and caring nature forged many friendships within the Veteran community, and her generosity did promote many support programs throughout the years benefitting Veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress and their care-givers and families.

Rosemary requested that no public service be held, and in respect for her wishes she was cremated in Norfolk, VA with a small and personal family gathering. In lieu of flowers, the family requests remembrances be made in writing and sent to Brandee Murphy [1439-B North Mount Vernon Ave., Williamsburg, VA 23185] and if you so choose donations be made in her memory to the Pennsylvania Veterans Trust Fund [https://www.pa.gov/dmva/donate/], an organization she felt strongly about.

My loving mother, my best friend, my #1 supporter. You were the one who was always there for me. You loved me unconditionally, wholeheartedly. Your love for Rose and Ariel, the memories you created with them, will carry on in their hearts forever. Mom, how do I go on without you? I love you so much. Love, your little girl

Our hearts are broken at the loss of our mother. Life will not be the same without Rosemary, but we feel comforted knowing that she lives on in the hearts of her many children and grandchildren. Rest peacefully now in the Lord’s loving arms.
