Outlaw Cruisers mourn the loss of Rosemary Holman, who passed away Nov. 16, 2015. Rosemary, wife of Cotton Holman, was an active member of the club and served as Treasurer from 2010 to 2014.
Rosemary was born March 9, 1941 in Ketchum, OK. She attended school in Pryor until 6th Grade then moved to Locust Grove, where she graduated High School in 1959. She loved playing tennis and basketball during her high school years. Rosemary and Cotton married on June 30, 1958 in Tahlequah without telling her parents. They didn’t realize their marriage would be published in the paper.
Rosemary worked as an executive secretary for Lone Star Cement Factory in Pryor, where she retired after 42 years of service. She was a member of the Locust Grove First United Methodist Church and shared her beautiful voice singing in the choir. She was an active member of the Home Community & Education Group and the Pryor Patchers Quilt Guild. She took up quilting late in life after retiring, and made many exquisite quilts that looked like she had been quilting all her life. She was a perfectionist and won ribbons and awards for her work, including her most recent accomplishment for “Grand Champion Quilt” at the 2015 Mayes County Fair.
Rosemary was always looking out for and taking care of Cotton. She and her smile will be sorely missed by all that knew and loved her.
