Rosemary Cronk

EDMOND —     Rosemary Cronk, 88, a lifelong Edmond/Oklahoma City, Okla. resident, passed away November 20, 2012 as a result of complications due to dementia. She was born December 8, 1923 in Oklahoma City to John Ross Dickson and Ruie Blanche Moore Dickson. She graduated from Central High School in 1942, where she was a member of the Accordion Band. Rosemary married George McComber, father of Sharon in 1941. After George’s death in 1950 she married R.R. “Dick” Farmer (1916-1968), father of Diana, in 1953. She was married to Robert Danley from 1970 to 1978, and then married Jerry Cronk in 1979, who preceded her in death in 2009.

    Rosemary was an artist who exhibited in the Oklahoma City Festival of Arts and other juried art shows. She was a member of the Begonia Society and Cactus Society in addition to working with disabled adults. She loved animals and contributed her time and money towards the care of homeless cats and dogs. In 1969, Rosemary began a successful career selling advertising specialties, at a time when there were few women in the field. She received many awards during her career, while working for the Homer Miller Company and McDowell Incentives.
