Rosemary Cotter-Fischer, born July 4, 1930, died peacefully on February 20,2021 at home surrounded by family. She was kind and gentle yet possessed such a strong character that her entire family and her many friends could always depend on her strength.

She went to great lengths to build a creative, challenging and interesting life. She was an artist who painted for sixty years, a weaver, jewelry maker, journal keeper and adventurer. She lived in many locations from the Northeast to Key West, where she joined a thriving artistic community and she traveled extensively.

As a teenager she learned to sail, crewing on small racing boats on Long Island Sound. Later in life she returned to sailing with her husband, covering most of the Eastern Seaboard and the Caribbean.

After her nurse’s training was interrupted by illness as a young woman she worked for a pediatrician. Thirty years later she completed her studies and earned her RN. She then worked at Misericordia Hospital in The Bronx. She counseled people affected by addiction and formed lifelong relationships with many.

She was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend. In her Key West days, she would drive alone up to New York or fly to the Mid-West to be with her grandchildren and family for extended stays.

She is survived by her daughter Julia and partner Aaron, son Joshua and wife Maurette, son John and wife Angela, her grandchildren, Lily, Nate, Sawyer, Roman and Steve, her sisters Alice and Mary Anne and a large extended family. She is predeceased by husband Steve, her father Francis, mother Bess, and sister Francie.

Rosemary’s independent spirit, her generosity, compassion and understanding will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

A memorial service in her honor will be planned when it is safe to gather again.

Hello, this is Gail Keeler. I met Rosemary in an art class at Florida keys community college many years ago. We became friends, sharing laughs in water aerobics, commiserating about men, and dreaming of where we would next travel in our own RVs. Rosemary was always a good listener, providing thoughtful suggestions and a shoulder to cry on. I remember her delicious salads! As our lives took us to locations outside of key west, we stayed in touch. I always appreciated her caring nature and willingness to listen. She was a deeply spiritual and loving person. And she will be missed.
