Sunrise: 9/16/1943. Sunset: 4/01/2021
Rosemary Ramjattan, born to Ramesar Ramsaroop and Ramdayah Patraj on September 16, 1943 in Trinidad, where she lived her life to the fullest. She was the wife of the late Ramlakhan Ramjattan, fondly known as Tates, for over 52 years, only parted with his sudden passing in 2015. She was the loving mother to Suzanne and Deryck Ramjattan, who she supported and encouraged to migrate to the United States in search of a better life. She was the proud grandmother to three, Justin, Krista and Andrew, and honorary grandmother to many. She was the mother-in-law to Nick and Karen, with whom she shared a special relationship.
She was a sister to Rosemin and Shirley, the threesome were known as the Golden Girls, in addition to Rosie, Rosalind, Nankissoon, Basdeo and Karan Ramsaroop. Sister-in-law to Boughraj, Kena, Omar, Lakram, Kamaldaye, Nolan, William, Ravi, Jamsie, Babsie, and Chan. And loving and attentive aunt to many.
Rosemary was full of life and enjoyed traveling, visiting Barbados, England and Canada. Together with her husband and family, she traveled throughout the United States including to New York, New Jersey, Florida, Las Vegas, Virginia, Washington DC, Pennsylvania and Niagara Falls. She enjoyed cruising and visited the islands of Caribbean including the Cayman Islands, St Martin, St Kitts, Grenada and across the world to Dubai, Jordan, India, Indonesia and Singapore.
Rosemary was a great cook, often making the favorite dishes for family and friends. And was known for her black cake, homemade bread. She enjoyed time at home, but enjoyed going out to restaurants, movies, English or Indian and a variety of music. She loved playing the slot machines with her sisters and enjoyed everything bright and colorful, lighting up the world with her clothing and accessories. She had a gift for conversation and could talk and laugh for hours with family, friends or even people she just met. Small in stature, but certainly not by nature, she was a brave, fierce and strong, not afraid of jumping on a NYC subway to visit someplace new, to go shopping or to attempt a cameo appearance on a morning show.
She will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure to know her.
