24070 RossoROSSO, Dorothy….

At St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital, St. Thomas on Friday, January 18, 2013, Dorothy Rosso in her 90th year. Beloved wife of Joseph R. Rosso. Loving mother of Kenneth J. Rosso and Donald Rosso all of London. Also loved by her granddaughter Ashley Rosso. Predeceased by her son Robert Rosso.  Resisting to the very end, her mind was as witty and alert as ever. Her body however was no match and gave out.  Those of you who knew Dorothy will remember her as a gentle soul, an unselfish giver, filled with a youthful passion for life and a spirit able to illuminate a room with her presence.  Mum will be missed by all who she touched.  Her dry British wit, her uncompromising ability to live in the moment, her awesome grilled cheese sandwiches, her unbridled childlike inquisitiveness and her genuine love of life!  Most sad to see her go will be her husband Joe.  Inseparable for 68 years of marriage, theirs is a true fairy tale romance; a love surely to endure beyond earthly constraints.  When we remember Dorothy it should be with smiles.  Our tears should be those of joy, not sadness.  For it was truly a privilege to have known her.  We will miss you! Cremation has taken place.  A memorial gathering will be held on Thursday, January 24, 2013 from 5-10pm, at the Royal Canadian Legion, Lambeth Branch No. 501, 7097 Kilbourne Road, London.  As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to The Plunkett Foundation, 9282 Elviage Drive, London ON N6K 4N5.
