Rosemary was born August 2, 1930, in Arcadia, Wisconsin, to Frank and Louise Krumholz.  In 1948, she attended the College of Saint Benedict, St. Joseph, MN, and on January 5, 1952, she married John E.

In 1988, she retired from being a dental receptionist in Morris, where she was active in the choir and taught CCD at Assumption Church. After retirement, Rosemary and John moved to the Battle Lake area.

Rosemary‘s cherished times were spent with her husband and family at their home on Middle Lake. Among her favorite pastimes were gardening, fishing, reading and traveling. She is survived by her husband, John E. Woell; her children John M. Woell (Marcia), Christine Grierson (Bruce), William Woell, Jeffrey Woell and Julie Horkey (Tom) and her 14 great grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her parents Dr. Francis Cyprian Krumholz and Louise Dorothy Reuter, brothers George, Paul and Francis and her sisters Barbara and Carol.
