Obituary for Rosemary Gratkins

Rosemary   Gratkins
Rosemary Agnes Gratkins, 83, of Broomfield, CO passed away peacefully Saturday, January 21 with family at her side.

A funeral mass will be celebrated on Monday, January 30 at 11:00 AM at St. Mark Catholic Church in Westminster with interment following at 2:15 PM at Ft. Logan National Cemetery in Denver.

Rosemary, the daughter of Joseph and Jeanette Judge, was born in Chicago, Illinois on June 11, 1933 as the oldest of 3 children. She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Patricia (Pat) and brother Joseph (Joe). The Three Musketeers, as the siblings were known, are now back together and are surely wreaking havoc. Rosemary is survived by her husband John (Jack), her children Eileen and John, along with numerous nieces, nephews and their families.

Prior to marriage, Rosemary worked in the offices of the Coca Cola Bottling Company and Pitney Bowes in Chicago. Through mutual friends, she met Jack and they were married a couple of years later in 1957. After taking time to stay home to raise her two children, Rosemary worked for almost two decades as a volunteer and then teacher’s aide at Warder Elementary in Arvada, CO. She enjoyed ice skating, movies, and spending time with her family.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Rosemary’s memory can be made to the Little Sisters of the Poor of Denver. (

The family also wishes to extend their gratitude to Lutheran Hospice and Palliative care for their exceptional support in her final days.
