Rosemarie met the love of her life, Gus, and they spent 43 years of marriage together. She’ll be remembered as a chef at the Plaza Hotel in Kamloops for many years. Rosemarie always had a smile for people, and a special love for her family. She enjoyed boating, travelling, and spending time with her family and friends. Her faith was very important to her, and her inner strength helped her greatly through many difficult times.
Private family arrangements have been made. The family would like to thank the many medical and health care professionals who helped Rosemarie though her illness, with special thanks to retired doctor Terry Simpson and his assistant Sue, to Dr. Howie, and to the caring staff and nurses at Pine Grove Care Centre.Print This Obituary & Condolences
