Rosemarie Palmer Buell
Rosemarie Palmer Buell passed away on September 19, 2021.She was born in Royal Oak, Michigan on July 7, 1927 to Maurice Austin Palmer and Agnes Roberts Palmer. Her parents moved from Royal Oak to the Milford area where she would graduate and meet her husband, Arthur Buell. They married and would begin their life devoted to each other and their family on a farm in Webberville, MI. It didn’t take long for this city girl to turn country, as she liked to share with people, because she easily fit into her life doing farm chores and fieldwork, all while maintaining the home and caring for their three children. She was a gifted crafter, crocheting afghans and doilies and always to perfection.To support her community, she served on the election board for several years for Conway Township. Her claim to fame until the year of her death was mowing her two acres of lawn with a John Deere zero-turn mower that her husband gifted her, in exchange for the diamonds he offered her first. She was generous and kind-hearted, and was still welcoming new neighbors to the neighborhood as recently as last week.
Her true joy was her complete devotion to her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren,and great-great-grandchildren, where there was no limit to her love. Left to cherish her memory are: her daughter Vicki Buell, her son Scott (Ronda) Buell, and son-in-law Michael Dietz; her grandchildren: Kim Copeland, Jodi (Daniel) Conley, Andy (Heidi) Dietz, Leigh Ann (Steven) Halas, Gregory (Lisa) Buell, and Diana Buell-Fussell, Shawna Freeman (Mitch); her great-grandchildren: Zach Copeland (Rebecca Lezzotte); EJ Copeland (Kaileen LeBlanc);Makenzie (Adam) Roy; Ian, Isaac, and Rowan Conley; Anna and Michael Dietz; Rory Halas; Rebecca, Antonio and Armando Buell; Nathaniel and Nevaeh Buell-Fussell, Seth Buell; and her great-great grandchildren: June and Louis Roy.
She was preceded in death by parents; two brothers, Austin and Dick Palmer; her husband, Arthur Buell; son, Rodger Buell; daughter, Susan Buell Dietz; and her little Yorkie, Missey.
