"My Aunt Rose was a sweet and gentle person. When she was 7 years old, she was a flower girl at my parents' wedding. As a teenager, I saw her performance in Amahl and the Night Visitors. She worked hard to sing and perform as well as she did. And in later years she created beautiful, one-of-a-kind cards. With her strong faith, I am sure that she is in heaven with Ken. She will be missed by family and friends whom she has left behind."
"Althoug the time spent in Magnolia with "Aunty" Rose , "Uncle" Ken and family was short, the memories remain vivid and fond. Their kindness, hospitality and generosity to a 17 year old Exchange Student from Western Australia was warm and greatly appreciated to this day. Aunty Rose sure could cook ! Their visit to Perth for my sister Michelle's wedding to Keith was another fantastic time shared. I'm SO excited that both Ken AND Rose found Jesus : the Lover of their Souls ! See you in Heaven one day, beautiful folk. May you rest in perfect peace til Jesus returns to fly you both HOME !
With heartfelt condolences to Keith, Mary, Debbie and Rose's loved ones, from Lisa Kirk (nee Gillham) , husband Mark and family.
"Aunt Rose, I can't believe your gone. You were such a bright light in my life. I remember the weeks in Avalon. Your great cooking. Sleeping in that big old house as a kid and being awakened by my cousins and the cats that were all dumped on me. I will miss you calling me RootyToot. .. I love you.
"Aunt Rose's wonderful sturdy faith in our Lord has been an encouragement to me in recent years, and I told her so! She will be missed by many. I offer my sincere condolences.
"A Rose is a symbol of Love and that is what Aunt Rose is to me. She even changed rain to sunshine in Avalon. So many loving, fun memories, too many to list here. Thank you for being my Aunt. I will forever love my Aunt Rose
Condolences to all family and those she touched in her life. Donna E. Kassuf"
