Rosamond "Roz" May Manwaring

Rosamond "Roz" May Manwaring, 85, passed away Feb. 1, 2001, the first winter in 82 years that she did not get on a pair of skis. Cancer was the only thing that could keep her off of her boards.
Born March 20, 1915, in Boston, Mass., to father Dr. Arthur W. May and mother Lucia Bliss. Roz grew up in Jamaica Plain and graduated from The Lee School. Her love of sewing and fashion began with her first job at Filene's. Her love of Mount Washington and its valley started very early when the May family summered in Silver lake and her father brought her north for hiking and skiing throughout the years. She enjoyed many trips on the now famous snow trains to North Conway in the 1930s and '40s.
She married Joshua G. D. Manwaring of Flint, Mich., on July 13, 1937, in Gorham. She began her professional skiing career while living in Bradford and working for the Sunapee Ski Patrol.
Roz taught physical education in the 1950s and '60s at Dana Hall School in Wellesley, Mass., while living in Needham. She first visited Pleasant Mountain in Bridgton in the '50s, bringing school groups to the area. She started her ski teaching career for Penny Pitou and Egan Zimerman in the '60s at Blue Hill Ski Area in Milton, Mass.
Roz moved to the valley in 1967 to be close to her true love, Mount Washington. She was well known for being the first one on the snow and the last one off the snow every season. Her slow steady steps up the first snow made at Wildcat or Attitash each season became a rite of winter, she didn't wait for the lifts to start up. To ski was to be. She taught skiing with Arthur Doucette and Sonny Lynch Ski Schools at Black Mountain in Jackson. She and her daughter, Roz Too, ran the Pleasant Mountain ski school from 1975 to 1980. She then taught at Bretton Woods for several years, back to Shawnee Peak Ski School at Pleasant Mountain, and her last ski season was spent at Bretton Woods, her favorite teaching terrain, where she taught full-time right through February vacation week 2000. It is hard to mention her name without someone saying, "Oh, you taught me to ski years ago" - even the ambulance attendant who brought her home from Maine Medical Center.
Roz continued her active teaching life in all seasons by starting tennis programs in the valley. She taught tennis on the clay court of Mrs. Alice Dickerman on Route 16A for years. Many local children got their love of tennis from Roz thanks to Mrs. Dickerman's generosity. She also started a tennis recreation program in Lovell, Maine, which has grown to be very popular. Children as well as adults learned an incredible love of sports and enjoying life from Roz. She was easily recognized by her famous hats, whether turf skiing at Cranmore, climbing the first snows at Wildcat, or roller skating in Pinkham Notch.
She was predeceased by her ex-husband Joshua Manwaring in 1979. She was predeceased by her sisters Barbara M. Phail in 1992 and Dorothy M. Schuck in 1999. She is survived by her dog Whiskey, her constant companion; three daughters, Nancy M. Harris of Lincoln, Mass., Canda D. Tinkelenberg of Brownfield, Maine, and Rosamond B. Manwaring of Fryeburg, Maine; five grandchildren and one great grandchild; and several nieces and nephews.
Friends are invited to remember Roz at the Red Jacket Mountain View, North Conway, on Sunday, Feb. 11. There will be words of remembrance at 5 p.m., followed by a reception.
