Marriage to Doug Palmer
The housekeeper at Woombai and sister of Gordon
Hamilton's first wife, Nancy, is very fond of the Hamilton
family - with the exception of Patricia, who she doesn't
trust one inch. She's devastated when debts mean Gordon
has to put Woombai up for sale. She moves to Melbourne,
where she discovers that she has a niece - Gayle - who's
the daughter of Rosie's son, Barry. She helps shape Gayle
from a rough Melbourne teenager into a proud young woman
who heads off to work in the country.
Rosie meets Doug Palmer - David Palmer's father - and
find she has a lot in common with him. Romance blossoms
over time and Doug and Rosie end up marrying. They move
away to the country to start their new life together.
Rosie makes one further appearance - as the catalyst
for introducing Leigh Palmer into Sons and Daughters:
Doug's granddaughter is staying with him and Rosie, but
wants to see the bright lights of the city. Rosie arranges
for her to go and stay in Melbourne.
