Bartlett senior leadership and Board members send their condolences to the family and loved ones of Rosemary Hagevig, who passed away April 7, 2022.

“The entire board sends our thoughts and prayers to Rosemary’s family,” said Board President, Kenny Solomon-Gross. “She will be missed by so many people in this community. I know I am a better person for knowing and working with her. Bartlett benefitted tremendously from her leadership.”

Rosemary began her service on the Bartlett Board of Directors in January 2018 and was reappointed in January 2021. She served as Vice President since 2019. During her tenure, Rosemary was a member of the Governance, Planning, Executive, and Quality committees, in addition to serving as the liaison to the Bartlett Foundation Board and Credentials Committee.

Rosemary’s service to the Juneau community spanned decades. She served on the Board of Directors and then as the Executive Director and CEO of Catholic Community Services from 1990 to 2012. Beginning in 1994 she served two-terms on the City and Borough of Juneau Assembly and Planning Commission. She dedicated 27 years to public education with the Alaska State Department of Education and Early Development.

In addition, she dedicated her time to AARP Alaska, the Juneau Community Council, the Southeast Conference, the Alaska Municipal League, the League of Women Voters, the Alaska Pioneer Homes, and Juneau Gastineau Rotary.

Rosemary was named Juneau’s Citizen of the Year in 1995 and was one of only 11 Alaskans selected to carry the Olympic Torch in 1996.

She is survived by her three adult children, four grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.
