(nee IORIO)
April 10, 1929 - May 11, 2019

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Rose at the age of 90, after a battle with dementia.
Leaving to mourn Roses memory are her daughters, Linda and Karen (Danny); granddaughters, Carleigh (Evan) and Kayla (Jason); great-grandchildren, Nash, Parker and Archer; granddogs, Jasper and Bender; brothers, Mike and Conrad; sisters-in-law, Mary Iorio and Lilian Hansen; brother-in-law Al Penny (Anne); as well as many nieces, nephews and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Joe in 2012; her parents, Giuseppe and Angelina; siblings, Constance, Phil, Armand, Rudy and Richard.
Mom worked at the Winnipeg Clinic until her retirement in 1979. She loved bingo, bowling, the racetrack and the casino with Dad and friends. More of her favourite things included a good game of Euchre on a Saturday night with Dad and the gang, a few laughs, food and of course a couple of drinks. She loved the Blue Jays and at one time could name every player on the team. Dad teased her all the time saying, "you can't hit the ball if you don't take the bat off your shoulder". Over the years Mom and Dad made numerous friends from Safeway to Shoppers to McDonalds and from bingo, bowling, the racetrack and casino.
Her granddaughters and great-grandchildren were the apples of her eye. The love she had for them was special like only a grandmother's love can be.
Family and friends are invited to a gathering in honour of Mom on May 21, 2019 at the Charleswood United Church, 4820 Roblin Boulevard from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. In compliance with Mom's wishes, a private family interment will be held.
Special thanks to the staff at Charleswood Care Centre and Residence Despins for their care of Mom.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society, 10-120 Donald Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 4G2, or the Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3T 0R3.

"What the mind can't remember,
the heart will never forget."
Until we meet again,
Love you forever
