It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Rosemary Richmond, former executive director of the American Indian Community House.  

Rosemary Richmond (Akwesasne Mohawk of the Bear Clan) was third-generation American Indian Community member of New York City . She had worked for the American Indian Community House (AICH) from 1975, and was selected as AICH's Executive Director in 1987 and served until 2010.  

Rosemary's work with the Native Community was influential and her mentorship impacted many native lives.  Rosemary worked tirelessly and her dedication to serving natives is evident through the programs that are still available at the community house. Her work was not just necessary but inspirational and her loss will be shared by all.

Rosemary's life celebration will take place on Saturday October 31st at 2:00pm at 15 Hudson Street, Norwalk CT 06851.  For further information please contact Fran Grumbly (203) 313-7244.
