Ros was one of a kind and will truly be missed! It saddens me to think that I won’t be building more memories with her at the retirement home when I come in to work but the moments we shared I will carry with me forever! She was one of my favourite residents and I will miss her dearly! No matter what kind of day I was having Ros made my job/life that much brighter! She was one of the kindest, funniest, most beautiful person on the inside and outside I’ve ever met. She would email me every Wed when I was on maternity leave and she was referred to as “Jensen’s honorary Grandma”, a title that was well deserved! We would always joke around about causing trouble together and we would even play the game chicken (she would come at me at full speed in her wheelchair and we would see who would get out of the way first) needless to say, she won that game fair and square! I will miss her laugh, her smile, our conversations, her hugs, her sense of humour and seeing her bright and beautiful face every day! My life is that much brighter because she was in it and I’m so truly blessed I got to know her! You will be missed Ros and will always hold a special place in my heart! Until we meet again! Lots and lots of love! Xoxoxo ❤️

I only got to meet her once, but luckily we did correspond by letter a few times. Even in that brief time, it was obvious she was a great lady who loved her family very much, she will be missed.

To the family,
I am very sorry for your loss. I will miss her wonderful sense of humour and her quick one-liners!

P.S. I guess the show with the feathers is cancelled Ros. We can get our act together later!

Rosalin was a lovely lady and it was a privilege to know her and share a table with her at Symphony Senior Living. We will always remember her with much love and affection.

My deepest condolences to the family. Rosalin had worked with my grandfather Ray Juneau and my mother Carmen Potvin. My father was Pauline Gribbon’s twin brother.
