Rose was immensely proud of her family and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories. As a loving mother and homemaker, Rose was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends, especially around the holidays. Until her health conditions made it impossible, Rose was active in the life of the Park Head United Church and served in the Women's Institute and sang in the choir. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts. The family gives their greatest and warmest gratitude to all who cared for Rose during her last days.
