Rosemarie Leibert (1927-2012) died New Year’s Day in Harrington, Maine.

Born Rosemarie Bruns and raised in Massapequa, Long Island, she worked professionally as a dancer. The highlight of her working career was dancing at Radio City Music Hall in New York City as a Rockette from 1944-1947.

She met and married Dick Leibert (chief organist at Radio City Music Hall) and began raising a family in Wilton, Connecticut. They had three children: Rick (Fort Lauderdale), David (Borrego Springs, California) and later Linda Domke (Harrington, Maine), who was born in Cape Coral, Florida, where Rosemarie and Dick retired.

She also is survived by four grandchildren. A memorial service on Block Island will be attended by family and friends.
