ROSE MARION KERBRAT Rose passed away peacefully and quietly in the afternoon of November 3, 2018, at the age of 86 years, in her own bed at the Maples Personal Care Home. Born Rose Madore on December 30, 1931 in Woods Island, Newfoundland. Rose was raised by her grandparents, Nicholas and Bridget Madore. She moved to Corner Brook, Newfoundland to attend school. Throughout her life she called several places home, such as North Sydney, NS, Marystown, NL, Thompson, MB, Leaf Rapids, MB, Brandon, MB, and finally Winnipeg, MB. While living in Marystown, NL and having 14 children, Rose still found time to serve on committees and was a member of the Catholic Women's League. Later on she taught religion classes to the children in Leaf Rapids, and was always active in the church. She worked at the YWCA, Don Johnson's Jewellery store, and at a medical clinic in Thompson, MB. Rose expressed that her fondest memories were the birth of each of her children, and said if she could live her life over she would probably do it all the same again. She said her greatest inspiration was any time one of her children accomplished something. Rose was very proud of her children and lived for them. She was happiest when having a family dinner, first communion celebration, graduation, or a wedding. Rose's hobbies included knitting, quilting, baking, playing cards, and bowling. She loved to travel and some of her favourite places were Corner Brook, NL and Florida, USA. Rose is predeceased by her mother, two husbands, three children, one grandson and one daughter-in-law. Left to cherish her memory are her 11 children, 21 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. In accordance with Rose's wishes, cremation has already taken place. Her Funeral Mass and interment will take place early June in Marystown, Newfoundland. A memorial service will be held on December 1, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street in Winnipeg. Father Dominic Yuen is officiating. A light lunch will follow. In lieu of flowers, Rose's family would like it if you do a random act of kindness for somebody or consider making a donation to a charity of your choice. They feel that Rose would have liked that. We were very lucky to have had Rose for so many years and will miss her greatly, but know that she is happy with her heavenly family.

  • Missing my aunt Rose whom I was very fond of. And her occasional phone calls , especially around Christmas. Some years ago she came home to Marystown for a visit and stayed with me. We went around and visited the places where she lived and had her family. It brought back a lot of memories. Some happy , some sad. Condolences to my cousins ( her children). I hope we will always keep in touch. A wonderful lady my aunt Rose. - Posted by: Con Fitzpatrick (Nephew) on: Nov 25, 2018
