Rosemary Committe

OTTUMWA — Rosemary Faulds Committe, daughter of Clarence E. Faulds and Grace Logan Faulds, passed away quietly on Friday afternoon, March 28 2014, in her home at 8870 Thunderbird Drive in Pensacola, Fla.

She graduated from Steubenville High School in Steubenville, Ohio, and attended Bethany College in Bethany, W.Va., where she met her future husband, Thomas Carroll Committe. She married Dr. Committe on May 14, 1944, in Twins Falls, Idaho. For 24 years, Rosemary spent the lion’s share of her time being a loving mother to her sons. In 1968, she moved with her family to Pensacola, Fla., and began a long and respected career in residential real estate. She started as an agent for “Better Homes," eventually earned her broker’s license and founded her own firm, “Homes by Rosemary." She specialized in properties located in Scenic Hills in Pensacola, Fla., and was generally regarded as the foremost expert on homes in that area.

Born in Ottumwa on June 16, 1923, she is survived by her sons Thomas Carroll Committe Jr., Bruce Edward Committe and Louis Frazier Committe; three grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; brother Thomas J. Faulds; and sister-in-law Jean Faulds.

She was pre-deceased by her husband, Dr. Thomas Carroll Committe; and son, Frank Louis Committe.

Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday at Halcyon Hills Cemetery in Sherrard, W.Va. She will be interred near her husband and parents. Her family will miss her.
