Condolences to Bob and their family.

A warm and kind woman who always smiled.

I remember digging in the backyard in oshawa, with a spoon. I was intent on digging to china .... lol.

She just shook her head and smiled politely, adding that you better hurry up cause dinner will be soon. lol

Sorry we couldn't make the funeral, but will visit soon.

Rose will be missed by all of you. She was one of a kind, but she also had the best of families too. Find your peace with her loss on your terms, and remember her fondness and laugh at the bad times.

Oh how I loved this woman! Rose came into my life and I adopted her as my Mom almost 34 years ago! My Mom had passed when I was 22 and Rosie was sent to me from above and I am truly blessed she was. We shared so many wonderful times together and laughed till we couldnt laugh anymore! We danced like no one was watching and loved spending time together. Rose and Bob, a truly beautiful marriage and friendship they had and everyone wanted what they were blessed to have, such a beautiful love story. Rosie will be missed so very much and we will love her always. Rest in peace, beautiful Rose🌷...❤
