Eventually, in the1980s she would begin working night shift at the Oregon State Hospital. She would continue working there until her retirement  Rosemary enjoyed time with her grandbabies and lots of card games. She loved to play bunco, bingo, pinnacle and anything that kept her social. In her 40s thru 60s she loved to square dance. She had a Monday and Saturday group that she would regularly go and play games. She was a fierce competitor but never cheated, she let her skills do all the talking.
