Obituary Announcement

Rowe; Roselle Marie

With saddened hearts, the family of Roselle Marie Rowe (nee Murphy) wish to announce that after a courageous 4 year battle with multiple myeloma, the cancer won. Roselle passed away at home on Monday September 12, 2016, with family by her side. She leaves behind her husband Jim of 55 years and the new love in her life Georgie, the kitty. Beloved mother of Allan Rowe, Jeff (Marina) Rowe, and Lynn (Gerald) Brown. Cherished grandmother of Jared, Erin, Jaime, James, Dustin, Colton & Autumn. Dear sister of Bunny (Stu) Moore, Gord (Carol) Murphy, and Doug (Diane) Murphy. Loved sister-in-law to Stan Harding, Rene Page, Joan (Bob) Charbonneau, Joyce (Tom) Zygaj, and John Rowe. She is also survived by her many nieces, nephews and cousins. Predeceased by her mother Muriel Mae Murphy (nee Dagg). Roselle’s passion in life was sewing, where she not only created clothes and gifts for her children and grandchildren but also several bridal party dresses including the most cherished, her daughter’s wedding dress. In fact there was no craft that she could not do to perfection that she put her gifted hands of love to. Roselle loved the sights and sounds of Christmas, spending time with her children and grandchildren, and travelling to Walt Disney World with family. She never gave up the battle, never lost her sense of humour and had a positive attitude right to the end. She will be missed greatly. Special thanks to all those involved in Roselle`s care at Bluewater Health and at the London Regional Cancer program. Thanks also to Michelle and Mandy for their compassion and care. Friends and family will be received at McCormack Funeral Home – Stewart Chapel, 254 George Street (at College Avenue) on Thursday September 15th from 6 – 8 pm, where the family will have on display her gifts of love.

Message For The Family.

I'm going to miss you Aunt Rosie. I'm so happy I was able to come and visit with you this summer. I could barley get a word in! I will never forget our Saturday's at the Bridal Shop. The beautiful dresses that you made for my own wedding and alterations for brides to be were top notch. Our tea visits when I lived next door to you for a short time were always full of laughter. You Aunt Rosie were one special lady. I will never forget you. Love Heather XO

Aunt Rosie, I will miss all the apple pies you ever made for me when you didn't need to. You always thought of me. I'll miss all the family reunions that were at your house. You were always there to help the family and we are all going to really miss you.
