PAONIA – Rosalind Gladys DeLamater, age 93, a homemaker/secretary and a resident of Paonia since 1990, died on Monday, June 28, 1999, in the Paonia Care & Rehabilitation Center.

Rosalind Gladys Huies, the daughter of George Francis Huies and Ida (Weyl) Huies, was born on Oct. 22, 1905, in Long Island City, New York. She spent her childhood, graduated from high school, and grew to adulthood in Long Island, New York. She continued to pursue her education at the Callahan Business School in Long Island, New York.

Rosalind lived in Long Island, N.Y. until 1932. She then lived in Rye and Rhinebeck, New York.

She was married on March 4, 1942, in Orlando, Florida, to Major General Walter A. DeLamater, who preceded her in death.

In 1985 Rosalind moved to Selkirk, New York, where she remained until 1990 when she established her home in Paonia where she lived until the time of her death.

She was a member of the Paonia United Methodist Church, a member and Past Matron of Beekman Chapter No. 496, Order of Eastern Star at Rhinebeck, New York; belonged to American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), and was a former Grange member.

Rosalind had many special interests during her lifetime, but she especially enjoyed being a nurse’s aide, traveling, gardening, and doing volunteer work for the American Red Cross.

Survivors include two daughters: Claudette “Skip” DeLamater, of Paonia; and Dolores Silk, of Goffstown, New Hampshire.
