Rose-Ann Jean Jacobs

July 5, 1966March 22, 2020

It is with profound sadness we announce the sudden passing of Rose-Ann Jean Jacobs on March 22, 2020 at 11:28 pm.

Devoted and loving step-mother to Jared, Mikael and Julia-Grace and equally devoted to her loving partner Jennifer-Marlene. Loving sister to Elinor, Iris, Robert (deceased), Sheila and Kevin and also loved by her niece and nephews. Cherished daughter of Jaxine Dorothy Louise and Rudolph Mackenzie Jacobs. Rose-Ann will be fondly remembered by many friends, aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family members.

Rose-Ann Jean will also be remembered for her dimples (cabbage patch), her love for helping in the LGBT community, her laughter, and her "Voice of Angel" for singing karaoke. She will leave an imprint on our hearts that we will carry in our hearts forever and always.

I would especially like to mention on behalf of Rose-Ann : Kellie Choppick and Damien Dommer for always being very support throughout Rose-Ann's journey and with her spouse Jennifer-Marlene Travers, and to welcome her into her new journey with her Mother. Your compassion and love resonates. The desire to help, will never go unnoticed. You will always be remembered and never forgotten. Ro sends her Love.



I'd like the memory of me to be happy.

I'd like to leave an Afterglow of smiles when the day is done.

I'd like to leave an echo...

Whispering softly down the ways

Of happy times, laughing times,and bright sunny days.

I'd like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun,

Of happy memories that I leave behind when the day is done.

Ro.....I still can’t absorb this. I can’t get that you are no longer walking this earth. You loved in such a beautiful and healing way. I don’t think I will ever fully get how deeply that love healed my soul. Your loyalty was fierce....like I’ve never known before. I’m so, so sad that you and Asher never met. We always thought there would be more time. Yet even never having met him, he was forever your boy. The new one on the way too. You claimed them both. Your love never wavered, only grew stronger. This is so surreal. Maybe one day it will sink in. I’m so sorry I didn’t give you more time...you just wanted to spend time and I kept putting off the drive to Hamilton. I’ll forever regret that. So incredibly grateful to have known, loved and been loved by you.

All my thoughts and heart are with Jennifer, the kids, Kellie and Damien.

I can’t say goodbye yet so will just remind you that I love you in the here and after.

Let Me

Let me hold you in my arms
So that we may share the sense of calm.
Let me hold you in my arms
To tell you nothing is wrong.
Let me whisper to you
That I will be okay.
Let me whisper to you
You brighten my day.
Let me caress your head and reassure you.
Let me walk and breathe for you.
Let me always show you love
Let me hold your hand in mine
Always and forever till the end of time My Love.

I do not have enough words to tell you how much you meant to me and my family, you were part of the family. I am so very thankful you came into my life so long ago as we have shared so many hard laughs, some tears, many inside jokes, and so many adventures. You left an impression on the kids and Jordan, Ryan and "your boy" Taylor will forever be grateful for you being there. My heart breaks, but I am so lucky to have so many amazing memories to share. I will forever miss you and will always be your best friend and your "keligirl".

As Ro would always say... "K, Love you, bye bye!!" ❤

Rose-Ann I only met you once however you left a lasting impression on me and I was able to see just how much you and Jenn meant to each other. Be free of pain and trouble as you cross the Rainbow Bridge.

I miss you already.

Our thing was to send a funny photo face. Then she send me one back. I am just heart broken.

Sorry looks back.
Worry looks around.
Faith looks up.

Thank you for all the memories!

Rose-Anne ; you were the world to one of my closest friends. You were a kind, caring and compassionate person, and I regret that we didn't get to know each other better
You are going to missed by so many people, because you touched so many lives. May the peace of the Lord be upon you, as you enter your heavenly home. We are left to mourn your passing, and share your memories with great fondness and love. Rest in peace, my friend.

She's been 'Rosie' to me since 1987.
We shared many meals, laughs, friends and met regularly on the dance floor over the years.
He spirit was bright and laughter was contagious.
Her humor and mine together was a quick witted saucy banter. :)
She found me 'over-the-top' and called me 'Miss Dallas' no matter how much time passed. And, yes...she was a 'huge and unique' character herself! Hah
She showed respect for everyone and was ferocious in protection of those she loved.
Rosie was a force of life love and laughter.
I am shocked and oh so sad to hear of her passing. However, I remain so very proud to have known her and called her 'friend'.
I will no longer search for her in a crowd or light up when I see her across a room
I know she is singing her face off and capturing a new audience in the great beyond.
RIP Rosie eternal hugs....
Miss Dallas
