Rosemary passed away on Tuesday, September 22, 2020 at the Stanton Health Center in Stanton, NE.

Rosemary Elizabeth Kumm was born on September 10, 1928 on the family farm in Haymow Precinct, Stanton County, NE to Elmer and Antonia (Bohaboj) Kander.

She was baptized and confirmed by Rev Rudolph Norden at St John’s Lutheran Church, rural Howells, NE. She attended rural school District 38 through 8th grade and received many awards throughout her grade school years.

During her childhood, she and her brother John and sister Evelyn, helped with the farm chores which also included hand picking the corn crop, learning a strong work ethic throughout her childhood.
Rosemary graduated from Stanton High School, receiving many honors, in 1945 at the age of 16. After graduating she was employed as a bookkeeper for the Scherer Auto Co in Pilger, NE.

She met the love of her life at a dance. LaVine said that when he saw her across the room at that dance, he decided then that he “wanted to dance with that girl for the rest of his life”. They were married at St John’s, rural Howells, NE by Rev Norden on Dec 1, 1946. They started their life together on a farm at rural Wisner, NE but moved and made their final home outside of Stanton, NE.

Rosemary farmed alongside her husband and two of their three sons, throughout their life together.
LaVine and Rosemary were charter members of Faith Lutheran Church, Stanton, NE where she was active in LWML and Ladies Aid. Her faith in Jesus was the foundation of her life. She taught her children and grandchildren to also believe.

Rosie, as we all called her, enjoyed gardening, sewing and baking - with her fresh bread being famous among the family.

Rosie and LaVine enjoyed their Sundays dancing all over the Midwest, making many lifelong friends along the way.

She was preceded in death by her husband, LaVine, brothers John and Edwin and sister Evelyn Coufal.
She is survived by her sons Randall (Evy) Kumm of Blair; Russell (Jerri) Kumm of Stanton and Dwight (Judy) Kumm of Pilger; eight grandchildren Daryl (Ann) Kumm, Bryan (Katie) Kumm and Sarah Kumm; Brandon Kumm and Whitney Kumm; Amy (Kumm) Shaner, Nick (MaRanda) Kumm, and Steve (Emily) Kumm; thirteen great grandchildren Anthina Kumm, Tristan Kumm; Kayla, Alea (Chris), Quintin and Caleb Shaner; Izzabella, Zakkary and Zander Kumm; Kaden and Kane Kumm; and a brother Bob and sisters JoAnn (Milton) Schwartz and Carolyn Tutin.

I remember her for the beautiful wood working projects she made. My mom was given a nativity scene b y Rosie. I remember her also for her smile and happy personality. She also very much enjoyed giving and receiving hugs, as do I. She would insist on me to come over and give her a hug at family gatherings. I look forward to giving her a hug in heaven when I join her there someday.
