Rosemary Dayton Obituary

Rosemary B. Dayton, better known as Posy to her family and friends, 95, of Williamsport, passed away on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, at We Care in Loyalsock.

Born February 4, 1929, in Williamsport, she was a daughter of the late Sylvia Berkheiser.

While growing up she was an active member of St Mark's Lutheran Church where she sang in the choir for 20 years. She graduated from Williamsport High School in 1946 and then worked at the Williamsport National Bank. 

She was married to Robert B. Dayton "Bob" in 1951. Together they restored many historical houses wherever they lived. After retiring, Rosemary and Bob became active antiques dealers in Montoursville and Oak Bluffs, MA. Rosemary and Bob had three children, Abby Armstrong, Elizabeth and Jeffrey Dayton, and three grandchildren, Christopher and Brett Armstrong and Jennifer Dayton. Rosemary was an avid reader, loved working crossword puzzles, antique collecting and was accomplished in all types of sewing.

The thing Rosemary was most proud of was forming a small group of friends to save and restore the historic District Hall in Mystic, CT. Currently, it has become the home of the Mystic River Historical Society, with over 300 members dedicated to preserving and promoting the historical traditions of the greater Mystic, CT area.

In keeping with her wishes, there will be no services.

Memorial contributions may be made in Rosemary’s name to the Loyalsock Twp Volunteer Fire Company 715 Northway Rd, Williamsport, PA 17701.
