Rose Marie "Pinkey" Gough Badbinton
61, North Beach (Calvert County) Maryland
Born: 03/30/1951, Died: 05/01/2012
Rose Marie Badbinton, "Pinkey", as she was affectionately known by her family and friends, departed this life on May 1, 2012 at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, Maryland. For years she battled her sickness, but never once did she complain. We can truly say "she was a fighter" and lived life to the fullest.
"Pinkey" was born on March 30, 1951 to the late Joseph Butler and Alice Frances Kane Gough of Leonardtown, Maryland. She was the second of four children. In 1991, she was joined in holy matrimony to Isaac Badbinton who always called her "My Rosie".
"Pinkey" attended St. Mary's County Public Schools and graduated from Chopticon High School. Upon her retirement (due to her illness), she was employed for 22 years with the Department of Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service. She loved traveling with her grandchildren and golfing with her husband. "Pinkey" loved coming to St. Mary's to play cards as well as going to the casinos. Her true joy was spending time with her family and talking on the phone to her daughter, Roshannda, who was truly the apple of her eye. At family gatherings, "Pinkey" was always the life of the party. She cherished spending time with her nieces, whom she gave nicknames, Karen (Panny), Ericka (Poochie), Priscilla (Gee-Gee), Paula (Lala), Tiffany (Timmie) and Connie (Connie-Boo).
"Pinkey" leaves to cherish her precious memories, her husband, Isaac Badbinton; daughter, Roshannda Williams (Brian); four grandchildren, Kara, Toni, Amber and Keith; one brother, Thomas Gough (Ann); two sisters, Diane Wade and Linda Stewart (George Stewart-deceased); two aunts, Mary Catherine Kane and Lucille Berry; four godchildren, Thomas (Tommy) Gough, Priscilla (Gee-Gee) Gough, Anthony Wade and Sonia (Lulu) Miles; and Nathaniel Parks, who was like a son to her, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. "Pinkey" will truly be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Family and friends will unite on Wednesday, May 9, 2012 from 10 am until time of Mass of Christian Burial at 11 am at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 22375 Three Notch Road,Lexington Park, Maryland. Interment to follow at Charles Memorial Gardens Cemetery, Leonardtown, MD.
