Rose Mary grew up on a farm in Swift County, went to country school, then high school in Benson. She married Vernal Nokleby and they farmed in Mandt Township. They semi-retired in 1976 and began many years of travel in Europe and the U.S., including camping and living in their trailer at the lake.

Rose Mary loved dancing and fishing. She did word puzzles, worked in the field and raised huge gardens. She wrote poetry for fun, plus countless programs for showers, anniversaries, 4-H programs, and thank you odes to the people with whom she and Vernal travelled.

Rose Mary is preceded in death by her loving husband of nearly 68 years, Vernal; parents, Warren and Margaret Payne; siblings, Thelma Pahl, Lillian Flolo and her husband Manuel, Albert “Bud” Payne and his wife, Betty, and brother-in-law, Henry Walsh.
