Rose Mary Freeman, 79, of Fort Wayne passed away Sunday, July 3, 2022.  Born November 29, 1942, in Fort Wayne, she was a daughter of the late George and Marcella Sweeney.  Rosie graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1960.  She married Thomas Freeman in 1963.

The Freeman family would like to express our appreciation to every employee affiliated with BND Commercial Real Estate. Rosie has a wonderful family; however, she was so fortunate to belong to yours. Her work meant so much to her and we know your precious Rosie will be missed. Therefore, we offer our deepest condolences to you all.  God bless you. We would like to thank the Parkview Oncology Team for your kindness and support and thank you to Stillwater Hospice for providing Rosie with comfort, compassion and peace.
