It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Rosa after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She died peacefully at home in the loving embrace of her family.
Rosa was born in Krems an der Donau, Austria, on April 9, 1932, and emigrated to Canada in 1961, settling in Victoria in 1967. She will be lovingly remembered by Arthur, her husband of 57 years, as his “most precious jewel”; by her daughter Maxine; her son Steven and his wife Michelle, and by her 2 grandsons Ryan and Connor.
Rosa was a life-long parishioner and an active volunteer in the View Royal Anglican Church. From knitting up a storm for fund raising fairs and luncheons, to staffing the parish Thrift store and serving on several church committees, Rosa was a beloved member of her community.
Rosa’s greatest joy was her family and she cherished the many years she spent helping to raise her grandchildren and cheering them on at their various sporting activities.
We will gather to remember Rosa and inter her ashes, the details of which will follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to leave your condolences here or share a memory of Rosa. You may also contact the family directly.
“May you see the reflection
Of your life's kindness and beauty
In all the tears that fall for you.”
