Rosemary Wolfe, RIP

From Michael Swanwick comes the sad news that Rosemary Wolfe, Gene Wolfe’s wife of more than 50 years, has died.

I don’t have a lot to add to Michael’s write-up. I knew that she had been suffering for ill health for some time, and had been confined to 24-hour care for over a year.

My condolences to Gene and the rest of the Wolfe family on her passing.

Here’s a scanned picture of Gene and Rosemary on their wedding day from A Wolfe Family Album:

And here’s a picture of Gene and Rosemary (with Elizabeth Hand in-between) at the 2009 Readercon:
