Rosemond Bernice Rothering, 93, of Eau Claire passed away Saturday, April 29, 2023, surrounded by family at Care Partners Assisted Living of Altoona, WI.

Rosemond was born to Jess and Isabel (Wiggen) Teela on June 11, 1929, in Mondovi, WI. She grew up on a farm outside of Mondovi with her 7 sisters, Barbara, Irene, Marjorie, Violet, Lorraine, Bernadette, Carol and brother, John. She graduated from Mondovi High School in 1947. She married the love of her life, Mack Albert Hampton in 1953 and enjoyed 31 blissful years, until his death in 1983. Love found her again, and she was married to Donald Rothering (deceased) for 8 years. Her professional life spanned 88 years as receptionist for an attorney in St Paul and a dietary aide for numerous hospitals. Her greatest achievement was as a cherished mother and grandmother. Rosemond enjoyed baking desserts, picking blackberries on the farm, reading novels, playing cards, and attending family reunions and celebrations.

Rosemond is survived by her son, Kevin (Tina) Hampton and daughter, Marshan (Jerry) Sneen; grandchildren Niki (Jim) Davis, Jason (Elisha) Stone, Kirsten Hampton (fiancé Richard), Courtney (Justin) Hinnenkamp; Patrick (Fe) Hampton; and great grandchildren Mackenzie, Jack, Emma, Abby, Easton, Amara, and Ryker.

She is preceded in death by former husbands Mack Hampton and Donald Rothering; Son, Collin Hampton; and daughter, Sandy Johnson.

Condolences may be left below.


  1. Prayers for all during this difficult time.
    Even though I don’t go back home to Wisconsin as often as I used to; I am glad that I, Alleyn, and Judy got to visit with Rosemond when I was back there in January.

  2. So sorry we can’t be there. We are on vacation in Hawaii and won’t be home until Sunday. She was a special lady. Mickey fondly remembers staying with Rosemond and Mack for a few weeks in the summer when he was a teenager in Maiden Rock and riding horses.

  3. I was married to Sandy and Rosemond was my mother-in-law who I loved as much as my own mother and I will miss her dearly.

  4. I have very fond memories of my Aunt Rosemond. She was always so fun to be around, I remember babysitting Sandy in St Paul, and visiting and staying with her and Mac in Maiden Rock. Those were good times! Sending my love and condolences to her family.
