Rose Ann Latham, 52, of Chaptico, MD passed away peacefully on February 4, 2017 after a long courageous fight with MSA.

Rose was a 1982 graduate of Chopticon High School. She went to work for First National Bank of St. Mary’s. She earned her Bachelor’s degree while working at the Bank.

Sadly, she was forced into an early retirement due to her illness.

Rose was a loving person who helped many people. She has a great love of animals, and witty sense of humor. She loved her children and enjoyed taking them to the beach. Her family was her pride and joy and she loved to spend time with them.
