Rosalia Victorina Van Assche

September 23, 1936April 14, 2018

Rosalia Victorina (Rosa) Van Assche passed away peacefully following a long and courageous battle on April 14, 2018.

Born and raised in Antwerp, Belgium on September 23, 1936, she traveled the globe during her lifetime, experiencing vast and exciting cultures. She enjoyed living in Oberageri, Switzerland; São Paolo, Brasil; and along the serene east coast in Westport, Connecticut. Twenty two years ago, she discovered the beauty of Las Vegas, Nevada, where she and her family have enjoyed their residency since. She is survived by her beloved husband of 58 years, Pierre Van Assche, and her son and daughter, Sven Van Assche and Kristel Van Assche. Her passion for life was expressed through her love for her pets, animals, nature, cooking and gardening. Her one passion that took precedence, however, was her enduring love for her husband and two children, who were all by her bedside at the time of her passing. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a memorial gift be made to the Animal Foundation of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Please join Rosa's family for the Reception, scheduled following the Memorial Service.

Rosa was the sweetest, kindest lady in the world. I started coming to her house to cut her hair about 3 years ago. We quickly became friends. She loved her family so much. She talked about them every time we saw each other. I enjoyed every moment I spent with her and I will miss her dearly. I really loved Rosa. Rest in peace sweet friend. Your friendship is such a loss.
Blessings and comfort to her beautiful, loving husband and children.
With sadness and love, Carrie
