Rose Marie “Pinkey” Badbinton, 61, of North Beach died May 1, 2012, at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring.
For years she battled her sickness, but never complained. She lived her life to the fullest.
Born March 30, 1951, she was the daughter of the late Joseph Butler and Alice Frances Kane Gough of Leonardtown. She was the second of four children.
In 1991, she married Isaac Badbinton, who always called her “my Rosie.”
She attended St. Mary’s County public schools and graduated from Chopticon High School.
When she retired due to her illness, she had worked for 22 years with the U.S. Department of Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service.
She loved traveling with her grandchildren and golfing with her husband. She loved coming to St. Mary’s to play cards and going to casinos. Her true joy was spending time with her family and talking on the phone to her daughter, Roshannda, who was the apple of her eye. At family gatherings, she was always the life of the party. She cherished time with her nieces, whom she gave nicknames, Karen “Panny,” Ericka “Poochie,” Priscilla “Gee-Gee,” Paula “Lala,” Tiffany “Timmie,” and Connie “Connie-Boo.”
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her daughter, Roshannda Williams (Brian); four grandchildren, Kara, Toni, Amber and Keith; one brother, Thomas Gough (Ann); two sisters, Diane Wade (Frank) and Linda Stewart (the late George Stewart); 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.
The family will receive friends today, May 9, from 10 a.m. until time of Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Lexington Park. Interment will follow at Charles Memorial Gardens.
Arrangements are being handled by Briscoe-Tonic Funeral Home in Waldorf.
