February 26, 1960 — January 28, 2023


Rosemary “Rosie” Ann Yarger, age 62, of Chillicothe, passed away on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at UnityPoint Health Proctor in Peoria.

Rosie was born on February 26, 1960 at the USF Base in Tachikwana, Japan to Benjamin Paul and Dorothy Pearl (Arnold) Leible.  She married Joseph Yarger on October 20, 1979 in Chillicothe.

Surviving are her husband, Joe; her son, Keith (Sydnie Angel) Yarger of Chillicothe; her siblings, Richard Paul (Beverly) Leible, Marsha Ruth Leible, Rene (Steve) Treat, Rita (Kevin) Huggins and Raymond Leible; and many nieces and nephews.  Also surviving is Joe’s mother, Wilma Yarger, who thought of Rosie as her own daughter.  She was preceded in death by her parents and her daughter, Jamie Lyn Yarger.

Over the years Rosie worked for Caterpillar, she ran the canteen office for Eurest and worked in the cafeteria at Mossville Grade School.  She also enjoyed gardening and canning.  Family was most important to Rosie.  She was the glue; she was everybody’s Aunt Rosie.  She traveled all over to visit and even care for family members and she was the party planner for the family gatherings and parties.  She will be greatly missed by her family and all her knew her.

Cremation rites will be accorded and a graveside service will be held on Wednesday, April 12, 2023 at 2pm at Blue Ridge Cemetery in Edelstein where she will be laid to rest next to her daughter.  Arrangements are under the care of Weber-Hurd Funeral Home in Chillicothe.
