The wait of Rose’s passing was born lovingly by her son Michael and her closest friends: Claudia Symchysyn, Daniella Pastorius, Velma Fontain, and her loving nephew Colin and niece Alexis. Rose was born in Sydney, NS and moved to Halifax in 1967 where she first started working for Sears. In 1969, Rose and husband Mike moved to Windsor, ON which she called home until her passing. Upon retirement from Sears she devoted her life to her extended family; the parishioners of St. Martin de Porres, and subsequently Corpus Christi. Two of Rose’s greatest loves were her dog Max and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Rose had a sardonic sense of humour and loved to laugh.
