Rose passed away amongst the prayers and support of her family and friends the morning of March 31, 2010. With Mijo at her side, and her garden within her view, Rose now walks through God’s garden.
Her strength and beauty redefined womanhood. She will always be remembered for her dedication to her faith, family and friends.
On April 10th, St.Rose of Lima Catholic Church will hold a memorial service in Rose’s honor followed by a light lunch shared by her friends and family. At Rose’s request a private spreading of her ashes will commence atop Mount Washington. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for any donations to be made to the Sooke Hospice- an organization whose constant care and support has made every effort to comfort both Rose and her family through this part of Rose’s journey.
Her memory will rest in the light of every morning and the beauty of all God’s creations. May every spring rain forever remind us of Rose. God grant her the peace she so richly deserves.
Genuine and irreplaceable- grandma, mom, and friend.
