On February 27,2022, Rose Hunter finished her journey here on Earth.
Rose had a fabulous life and lead each adventure with spirit and happiness. Raised in the dirty thirties with her family and best friends (her sisters), she enjoyed every step from farm adventures, school sports and academics, excelling in all. Working as a nursing aide she met her handsome Airman, whom she was married too for 63 years before his passing. They travelled and moved many times across the globe all while raising their three girls. Rose has left many memories with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as many friends she made along the way.
We the family are immensely grateful for the friendships and special care Mom received from each and every one of you. She was incredibly blessed to have the care she received from the Legion Lodge and the residents, Evergreens Foundation Staff and residents, Alberta Health Services Staff, Drayton Valley Hospital Staff and finally The Pembina Village Good Samaritan Lodge staff who cared for Mom. All the while under special care and friendship from Dr. Murphy and staff all these years. They are all angels in each of their jobs and provided the best care possible, physically and emotionally. We thank all of you for a group hug finish to her end of life.
She is up there, playing crib with Dad now and reconnecting with all her people she had so dearly missed. A private service is Mom's request.
In lieu of flowers or such in her honour, Mom has requested that you take a friend for lunch, spend some quality time visiting, doing a needed task for someone in need or to donate to the Pembina Village Good Samaritan Society.
Her last advice is: " You get out of Life from what you put into it."
To those I love and those who loved me
when I am gone, release me, let me go...
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I travelled alone.
So grieve a while for me if grieve you must;
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on;
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see me or touch me,
I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All my love around you, soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say.
