Rosalind Walling Gumaer passed away at home in Mountainair, New Mexico surrounded by her family on May 18, 2020. Roz was born on October 16, 1943 to Cheves and Jane Walling in Montclair, New Jersey, the second of five children. She primarily grew up in Montclair, New Jersey, graduating from Montclair High School in 1961. Roz married Stephen M. Holton in 1963, and they were the parents of two sons, Stephen M. and Andrew T.
