Rosemary Primrose

The namesake of Savary Island's Primrose Lane. She managed every kid's favourite store The Candy Shop for many years.

According to Rosemary: "The Candy Shop was popular because I had 11 kinds of penny candy and was the only shop on the Island.

In the summer time I had to limit entrance to the shop to three kids at a time. There'd be up to 20 waiting on some days.

I loved the people that came and lived on Savary. During my time there I would spend some time being the Island nurse and would cycle around visiting people who were ailing."
