So sorry to hear of Rose's passing. She was a neighbour of ours on #4 highway for many years and a fellow volunteer at Re-Threads store in Durham. She was a great lady - always very practical and hard working. with a great faith as well. Also she was most generous - still remember all that rhubarb she gave us. May she rest in peace.

My heartfelt condolences to the family on the passing of Aunt Rose. As I watched her Tribute Slideshow today I was reminded of her big laugh and deep connection to her family. It brought back fond memories of Aunt Rose and Uncle Greg and their family at the Moser farm or Schaefer places ( Bellwood Lk/Up North). Her connection with her siblings all through her long life was remarkable.
