  1. Auntie Rose will forever be remembered by those of us on the ‘other side of the street’. All the times we showed up at the back door on Northmount Drive whenever she made cabbage rolls….skipping across the street every Christmas Eve for a special visit….I look back in the old black and white photos and see pictures of Adam and Rose with Mum and Dad celebrating their youth at the lake. Our families have been bound together for many years…..and the memories and love will never fade.
    Aunt Rose was a beautiful person, inside and out. We really will miss her. Our sympathy to you, Fran and Lynn and families, as well as our love.

    RIP Aunty Rose. You were like a second mother to me all those years I lived in Calgary. I was always welcomed at your place for suppers before the whole bunch of us would head out to bowling. Life was absolutely a joy spending time with you and Uncle Adam. I will miss you a lot and think of you and Uncle often.

    My condolences to the Dorey family. I never met my Mother’s sister but she was and is far more than a dear friend to my Mother Adeline Hanis. I believe she has passed on to a life where she has awakened to be welcomed by loved ones from her long life on earth and also loved ones who did not share in her personal journey through her recent sojourn here. God bless her.
