Rosemarie died peacefully September 1, 2009. It was a blessing for her family to be beside her during her final days at Vancouver General Hospital.

Rosemarie embraced life with a positive and caring attitude. Her energy for life, wisdom, humour and smile will be forever missed. These attributes and countless others brought her many friends and relationships that she cherished greatly.

Rosemarie valued the importance of giving back to the community. She was dedicated to making a difference, volunteering countless hours in Calgary, Edmonton and Salt Spring Island, raising funds for the Children’s Hospitals and other charitable organizations.

Rosemarie’s death will leave an enormous emptiness in the lives of her husband Peter, children; Theresa (Sid), Brenda, Kelly (Monika), Greg, Christa (Dennis). Grandchildren; Lindsay, Conner, Neils, John, Earl, Lisa, Cameron, Mackay, Megan, and her sister Sandra (Merv) and their children Tim (Dolores) and Leslie.

The Family extends a sincere thank you to Dr. Malherbe on Salt Spring Island and to the doctors and nursing staff of the Leukemia Unit and Palliative Care Unit of the Vancouver General Hospital.

A church service will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at

All Saints’ By-The-Sea in Ganges (110 Park Drive)

on Salt Spring Island.

Friends are also invited to gather with the family later the same day at 6:30pm in the lower level of the Salt Spring Island Legion (120 Blain Road) to celebrate Rosemarie’s life.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Salt Spring Therapeutic Riding Association, MS Society of Canada or the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.
