WEST POTSDAM — Rosemary Sweeney Martinez, 74, of Blanchard Road, peacefully passed away early Thursday morning, February 28, 2019 at Canton-Potsdam Hospital.

Rosie, as she was affectionately known, was born May 21, 1944 in Herkimer, New York, the daughter of the late Elmer and Louella (Burdick) Sweeney and attended schools in Elyria, Ohio. On September 3, 1960, she married James L. Martinez in Syracuse with Harry Bernedetti officiating.

Rosie was a dedicated homemaker to her husband and children. On July 31, 1954, she was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She was active with Potsdam Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall and enjoyed shopping on the clearance racks and generously gave her finds to those in need.

Rosie is survived by her husband of nearly 59 years, Jim; her sons and their wives, Jay and Kim Martinez of Syracuse and Jeffrey and Shanna Martinez of Potsdam; and her grandchildren, Peter James, Rafael, Parker, and Rachelynn.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by an infant daughter, Jody.

There will be no calling hours. A Memorial Talk will be held at the Potsdam Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall on March 9, 2019 at 4:00 PM.

Memorial contributions may be made in her memory to the Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall.

Arrangements are with the Donaldson-Seymour Funeral Home, Potsdam, where memories and condolences may be shared online at www.donaldsonseymour.com.
