Obituary Notice

Rosemary Jane Kellogg, age 78, passed away at her home on April 2, 2020. She was born on May 2, 1941 to Thomas and Florence (Thompson) Tree in Brookfield, IL or “Chicago Land” (as she would say).

On February 28, 1962 she was united in marriage to Terrance G. Kellogg. They would soon after move to Three Rivers, MI where they would raise their four sons.

Rosemary was a hard working house mom and wife. She enjoyed gardening, mowing her yard, watching the wildlife and feeding the stray cats that would wander into her yard. She had a special knack for coupon clipping and through the years saved thousands of dollars, of which she was very proud.  Later in life it became difficult for her to bend down to garden. She was thrilled when her neighbor built her a raised garden bed so that she could plant and care for her tomato and pepper plants while standing.

She is preceded in her passing by her husband, her parents, and sons Chris and Robert.

Left to cherish her memory are her children, Dean (Dawn) and Don Kellogg; grandchildren, Cody Brittenham, Kristin McDonald, Nicole Hoeppner, Michael Kellogg and Kade Kellogg; great-grandchildren, Ashley, Sophia, Ryan, Aries, Julian, Serenity and Sebastion; special friends, Tom and Teri Wilkins.

  1. I went to school with Rosemary. She was one of my best friends. We spent lots of time together and spent many over nights at each other’s homes. I will think of her fondly, fondly.

    My sympathy to her family.

  2. To the family of Rosemary, Don and I
    We’re so sorry to hear of Rosemary’s
    Passing. We were friends in high school
    and shared many happy days together.
    She introduced Don to me and we will be married 60 years this month. Our love and thoughts are with you and many good memories of your wonderful mother.

  3. Mom I’m glad I got to tell you I loved you the last time we spoke; and I’m grateful that you got your wish and passed at home. May God welcome you with open arms, there is no more pain, or loneliness now. Thank you for raising me, and taking care of me as a child. I’ll celebrate your memory by living my life as best I can. Thank you for all the things you taught me, the tomatoes are starting to flower. I remember you telling me how you could never grow tomatoes until your father passed away, and that he came to you in a dream and after that you were able to grow them. I guess you passed that to me, every time I eat a Kellogg breakfast tomato I’ll remember you and smile; but for now I water the plants with my tears, You are not forgotten, you live on in your children, and your children’s, children forever. Rest in peace mom, I Love you.

    • Don your mom and I were friends in grade school and high school. We spent so much time together. She was my best friend. Rosemary was a happy person with an easy spirit. She loved to dance and was really a good dancer. I am sorry that we lost touch over the years. I thought of her often and we exchanged Christmas cards until very recent years.

      I will always remember her. My e mail address is If ever you think that you have something to share that I would like to hear, please feel free to contact me. My husband and I live in Downers Grove, IL. My heart felt sympathy is with you. I notice that she lost two children prior to passing. That is such a heart breaking experience. God bless you. Please accept my sympathy. Lovingly, Sally Boland

  4. Rest in peace, Mrs. K. We will miss you so much. Even though we cry and mourn your absence in our lives, we have peace in knowing that you are now in heaven where there is no pain, no worry and no loneliness. You prayed that God would allow you to pass at your home and he answered your prayers. You are forever whole again! Praise God!
