ROSCH: Helen of Princeton, BC Formerly of Burnaby BC, Princeton BC, Edson, Alta

Posted by on September 6, 2016

images-4Helen Joyce [Claridge] ROSCH was born on 29 July, 1919 in Edson Alberta – lived a difficult but rewarding life – and early in the morning of June 22, 2016 she slipped quietly away into peace. Helen was predeceased by her mother Annie Marie [Burnell] in 1959, her father George Claridge in 1969, and three husbands; Louis Kuhn; Rudolph Petschl; and Willie [Wilhelm] Rosch.

She was an only child, spending her early years on the Alberta Homestead, learning to love nature in all its glory, including the animals, but loving horses most of all. As a teenager in rural Burnaby BC, on her horse Rex, she rode the bush trails up and around Burnaby Mountain with a small shovel and a hemp sack, bringing home trees and bushes that she liked. Her father planted the young trees along the fence lines and around the house, and he lined both sides of the long farm lane with them.

After raising her children and working as an LPN, prison matron and in psychiatric care, she retired to raise Arabian horses in the Similkameen Valley on a place she called “Hide-Away Villa Ranch”.

In 2001 a broken hip brought a halt to cleaning barns, as well as walking and riding the hills and meadows she loved. She moved to level ground in Tulameen, and two years later to a house on her son Edward’s nearby property, where she lived with her beloved cats until her final move to Ridgewood Lodge, in Princeton BC.

Despite being a single parent for much of her adult life, she was a strong, resourceful, and fiercely loving mother, who with limited help, and a tenacity seldom seen in others, successfully raised her sons through rough and tough times. She taught her sons the two important lessons in life, that nothing is impossible if you really want it, and that love is the most important thing in the world.

Helen will be sorely missed by her three sons; David [Muriel], Philip [Barbara], Edward [Leanne], six grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. Her family wishes to thank the staff of Ridgewood Lodge, Princeton, BC, for the thoughtful care and attention that she received while she tarried there. Helen’s final wish was to be cremated, and she did not want a service of remembrance. Friends and acquaintances who wish to honour her memory; please, plant a tree in her name.

SMITH, Edna Mae (nee Burnes)
Peacefully, at Shalom Village on Tuesday, 12 July 2016, our dearly loved Mother, Grandma, GG, Aunt and Friend passed from this life to the next to join her beloved husband, Clifford Smith; her son, Carleton; parents, Stanley and Atressa Burnes and her brothers, Arrell and Carleton Burnes. She was precious and honoured by her family and leaves two grandchildren, Patricia (wife of John) and Christopher (husband of Jennifer); great-grandson Callum; daughter-in-law Anne and sister-in-law Eileen Burnes. Sadly, two sisters-in-law pre-deceased Edna, Faye Burnes in November 2015 and Dorothea Burnes in 1958. Aunt Edna also held a special place in the lives of her nieces and nephews: Kathleen Stephenson, Mary Donnelle, Margaret Burnes and William Burnes; Julie Burnes and Michael Burnes. Edna was born in Millgrove, Ontario on March 18, 1916 and lived her 100 years in Millgrove, Hamilton, Waterdown, and for over a decade at Shalom Village in Westdale. She was a fine athlete like the rest of her family – a star basketball player on Zion United Church teams and a crack badminton player into her 80s. She was an artist in many media including ceramics, oil painting and knitting and a marvelous cook. Especially, she was our exemplary mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, daughter and sister and friend to many. She loved and lived life fully. We celebrate her life and mourn her loss. Edna had a strong faith and was a long-time member of St. James United Church in Waterdown. A funeral in keeping with her wishes will be held later with arrangements through Kitching, Steepe & Ludwig Funeral Home in Waterdown. Information regarding the service as it becomes available, and expressions of sympathy may be conveyed through the funeral home at www.kitchingsteepeandludwig.com.
