She leaves behind her sister Minnie and brother Ed and many nieces and nephews, and friends.
Everyone will remember “Aunty Rose” and her love of people, animals, flowers, nature, and her home on the Cowichan River which she lived in for 58 years.
Rose grew up in Saskatchewan on a farm, and moved to Vancouver in 1932 where she later met Ron. They married in 1947 , upon which they moved to Lake Cowichan that year to a house on the Cowichan River where she lived until her death.
Rose lived life to the fullest, always enjoying parties, cards, gardening, bingo, friends, and family in her home where the kettle was always on for all. We will always cherish her many daily acts of kindness to all.
A celebration of Rose’s life took place on Saturday, September 24, 2005 1 pm – 3 pm at the Lake Cowichan Seniors Centre.
