ROSE STEMKOSKI

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Rose Stemkoski on December 11, 2019, with her family by her side.
Rose was predeceased by her husband, Walter in 1999, and her daughter Donna in 2005. Rose is survived by her son Bruce (Nancy), granddaughter Vicky Gielas (Grant), sister Helen Oneschuk (Paul), and brother Larry Yakimovich (Ellen).
Rose was born in Selkirk, Manitoba in 1926, and was raised on a small farm in Narol, Manitoba.
After marrying Walter in 1946, they operated a grocery store and farm in Narol for 46 years. The classic multi-tasker, Rose was always gardening, storekeeping, attending church, cooking and raising a family. Rose enjoyed travelling abroad, socializing and visiting her many friends, especially with her late companion Everett Mulder. Her passion for people and humour brightened friendships.
Rose's lifelong devotion to her Catholic faith and the Corpus Christi Parish was always a top priority. Rose was an active parishioner, volunteer, communion server, fundraiser and senior Catholic Women's League member throughout her years. She was always generous to people in need.
Always energetic and in remarkable health, Rose enjoyed participation in many senior activities and clubs, including bowling, biking, swimming, travel and campaigning. Enabled by her faith, strength and determination, Rose was very independent, resourceful and ready to tackle any challenge.
Rose was blessed to have courage and an outgoing personality to 90 - three years. Her secret to longevity was "prayer to God" and to help others.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Corpus Christi Church, 5819 Henderson Hwy. on Monday, December 16, 2019 at 11:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Corpus Christi Church.

  • I was so shocked to hear of Roses' passing, I had just run into her at the doctor's office and although we had no time to talk much she looked just wonderful. I was in Rose and Walter's grocery shop every day for 20 years, we became fast friends, Rose always a straight shooter and to the point of any conversation we had, that was so refreshing to me. She could make me laugh at the worst of times in spite of myself, and I grew to love her very much. She was a good mother and thought the world of her granddaughter Vicky of whom she was very proud. I will sorely miss having Rose in my life and my sympathy goes out to her family. - Posted by: Margaret Fotiuk (Friend) on: Dec 15, 2019

Condolences to Bruce, Nancy and family,Larry, Ellen and family and Helen, Paul and family. - Posted by: Bob and Susan Malazdrewich (Friends) on: Dec 14, 2019
