October 21, 1912 – August 7, 2013

On Wednesday August 7th, with her children at her side, our wonderful Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother passed away peacefully at the George Boyack Care Centre in Calgary, Alberta.
Born in Fort William, ON on October 21st 1912 she is predeceased by her husband Edward(1988) and her eldest son William(2004) and is survived by her two sons, Tom (Heather) of Brantford, ON. John (Jane) of Niagara Falls, ON, and her daughter, Colleen Kozak (Gary) of Cochrane, AB.
Also survived by six grandchildren, Jeffrey, Michael, Nathane (Tara), Stefanie (Graham), Meryn (Clement) and Victoria (David) as well as three great grandchildren, Valerie, Kash and Elliott.
Rose lived the majority of her life in Welland,ON.and touched many people throughout her 101 years with her strong faith that every day was a blessing and lived her life in the same way. Our Mother always put family first and had the strength to get us through the most difficult of times with music and laughter. She spent many healthy and happy years travelling with family, relatives and friends enjoying much of North America; her remaining nine years were spent in Calgary under the loving care of her daughter and son in law. Singing was a great part of her life and she sang until the end entertaining her family.
Rose’s family would like to thank Dr. Stinton and all the third floor staff at the George Boyack Care Centre for providing a loving and caring environment that enriched her life over the past 6 years.

    Oh Colleen.. I just heard about Rose passing away last night, how are you? I am so sorry about your loss. It is never easy to loose your Mom at any age. I know there’s a big void in your heart right now and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Rose was truly a very special lady and held a special piece of many peoples hearts, she will always be remembered for her great sense of humor, her immense faith and the love of her family. I hope you can take comfort in the fact that you are the consumate good daughter, always loving and caring for your Mom. In our line of work we both know that is all too often not the case. Take care of yourself and we will talk soon.

    with heartfelt sympathy
