Rose was a wonderful person to know when we both worked at MNR in Parry Sound, and afterwards chatting in and around town. Rose was a straight-talking, positive person and it was a joy to know her. Sending my condolences to her family. Dorothy Shaver

Rosie was an amazing human being with such a good heart. She touched many lives and gave hope to many. She battled with her health for many year and pulled through very strong. I admired her courage and strong will to help others. She taught me that I should persevere in life and never stop dreaming. I remember her first and last trip to Lesotho in 2009. I took her around Lesotho and South Africa and she loved the experience. She was a very brave woman, but to my surprise she was afraid of heights. As we drove in the mountains on gravel road, she would be taking picture and each time the car moved closer to the edge she would lean towards the driver side in fear, and we would laugh 🤣 so hard! Rosie has been an amazing grandma to my son Malcolm and my daughter Emma as well as a good friend to my wife Lucia. She made sure to send some toys after their birth. Rest in eternal peace Rosie!

My condolence to all Rose’s family. My pleasure to have had Rose in my life. Sharing office space for a number of years at the ministry of natural resources. Rose, always a friendly greeting and smiles. Oh my, how we would laugh at silly jokes and just about anything. Rose put up with the smell of our fish and us her bear teeth. Rose, I will always remember you, your work ethic, your smile, your stories of trips to Cuba and Africa, your little chuckle and you fondly speaking of all your children and grands. Rest in peace my friend. Michelle
