Rosemary Donald

April 30, 1960 — November 30, 2019

Rosemary Mack Donald was born April 30, 1960 in Saginaw, Michigan to Ben and Ethel Mack. She entered into to her heavenly home on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at the age of 59 years.

Rosemary accepted Christ at an early age. She was a graduate of Saginaw High School, “Class of 1979.” After high school, she pursued a career in healthcare and worked at various nursing facilities in Saginaw as a CNA. Rosemary really enjoyed cooking and became a cook for the Cadillac Club and Rib Shack. Her food was always the best and you knew when she was in the kitchen.

Rosemary was known as a distinguished Queen and Diva. She was always poised and was never caught without her red lipstick, which was her trademark. She was a humorous person and one of her known sayings was “I know you shame.” Rosemary will be missed but never forgotten because “A rose by any other name is still a rose.”

Rosemary was preceded in death by her husband, Eddie Donald; parents, Ben and Ethel Mack; brother, Jackie Mack; sisters, Beverly Johnson, Veronica McKnight; father-in-law, Melvin Donald.

She leaves precious memories with her daughter, Shakila Mack (Sammie Carson), Ozark, Alabama; son, James Mack, Saginaw, Michigan; grandchildren, Danyell Gay, Sammie Carson, Journey Carson, all of Ozark, Alabama, Nyema and Isaiah Mack, both of Saginaw, Michigan; sisters, Gwendolyn (Clarence Anthony) Patterson, Wildwood, Missouri, Evelyn (Aggie) Sutton; brother, Sherwin Wayne (Jacqueline) Mack, Westland, Michigan; special nephew, Vincent Mack (Lisa Riley); nieces, Ebony (Benjamin) Kindle, Shamona Mack, Shawnta McKnight, Nyasha Patterson, Idella (Emmitt) Jenkins; special great-nieces, Sharice Mack, Cailee Roberson; nephews, Sherwin Brown, Clarence, Noah, Benjamin Patterson, Demont (Joyce) Mack, Jackie Mack, Joseph McKnight III, Sanchze and Sheldon Mack; aunt, Gladys Jones, Lancaster, California; mother-in-law, Annie Donald; many more nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
