The Hat Lady... RoseMarie Black dies at 79.

In Memory of....
Rosemarie Black  AKA Racetrack Rosie.

We all remember Rosemarie as "The Hat Lady" where I am from.  Matching bra top and leather mini's with stilettos.  Why?? Because she had the shape and body to do so, even at an older age.  I have seen her in White Castle on 79th and Stony Island, seen her in McDonald's on 65th and Stony Island, then would turn around and see her in Jewel on 95th and Stony Island.  I swear this woman would walk every where.  That's why she kept that soul sista shape past the age of 60.   Everyone knew her...Oprah Winfrey even knew her and countless other celebrities.

This would not be the Stony Isle Profile if there was no post In Memory of....
Rosemarie Black AKA Racetrack Rosie.  Rest In Paradise!!  You were a Chicago icon.
