Default Rosemary Fischer

Anyone knows if Rosemary Fischer of Milwaukee (born circa 1914) was Bobby Fischer's mum? Was she a beauty queen as well as the second prize winner at American Chess Federation's Women's championship in Chicago 1937?

Any info is appreciated.

Mike.

She wasn't. Bobby's mother was Regina Fischer (nee Wender), born in
Switzerland on March 31st 1913.
