It is with loving memory and great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend, Rose Marie Boissinot, on May 23, 2021, at the age of 77 years.
She peacefully passed away with her family by her side, and leaves to mourn son Andy (Donna); daughter Claudette (Chris); grandchildren, Manny, Carly (Richard) and Holly (Zack); sister Anita (Joe) Perreault; and sisters-in-law, Marie Paule Vandale and Jeannette Vandale.
Rose was predeceased by her loving husband Fernand; her parents, Rosario and Cecile Vandale; her sisters, Eleonore Vandal, Rita Cayer, Diane Ellard, Irene Levesque, Noella Kehler, Dorothy Main and Lucille Sansregret; and her brothers, Gilbert, Rene and Rhiel.
As we reminisce we remember that Rose "Knew How to Work a Room", she was a "Joy Bomb", and she made it a point to make everyone at ease with a big hug and genuine affection...even nephews with whom she'd Leg-Wrestle (and win!). She never forgot birthdays or anniversaries and made it a point to call everyone. Well, of course she did! She loved talking on the phone and her sisters even had a telephone birthday cake made for her one year!
She loved many, many card games. She was an expert and loved playing right up until a week before passing.
Rose was a big fan of the Blue Bombers and made many friends, calling over the players and radio personalities as she sat on the sidelines and was known as "Aunty Rose with the big hug". We also enjoyed our family rivalries with our Saskatchewan and BC families!
Rose was the most happy when her grandchildren came along! Who knew you could be so loved? They did!
And lastly, Rose LOVED all the dances and parties with Dad playing fiddle, and the Red River Jig being taught to all the "little" ones.
La Belle Rose, Maman were names we heard when the "Angels" at Actionmarguerite St. Vital cared for her in her final years. We wish to thank the staff from the bottom of our hearts for their love and compassion.
Our special thanks to Aunty Marie Paule; Yolande Lavallee; her "other" daughter Shelley; a few nieces for always being by her side, and to a couple of other special nieces that have helped immensely in the past week following her passing.
Burial has already taken place with a memorial pending at a later date.

  • Claudette and family, So sorry for the loss of your mom. She was so much fun and always so happy! I called her my Rosie cheeks. It definitely will not be the same without her around.

  • What a special lady! She was so much fun to have in our activity programs! She truly had such a joie de vivre. Always looked forward to the monthly shopping trips. Was always game to do anything. Heaven just got a a lot more fun! Repose en paix la belle Rose! - Posted by: Danielle St Amant Wookey (Retired recreation worker at Foyer ) on: Jun 10, 2021

  • Dear Claudette, So sad to hear of your mom's passing. I totally enjoyed talking with your mom. She was always in a good mood. She loved to dance even from her wheelchair! As a volunteer, we often do not see people as they were prior to their illness - so reading her obituary gave me a glimpse of the great lady she was! May the wonderful memories bring comfort to you and your family at this difficult time.

  • My condolences to Rose's family. She was indeed a very special person and friend to all who knew her. - Posted by: Yvon Dumont (Friend ) on: Jun 06, 2021

  • I knew Rose for a long time, ever since I was a little girl. My dad also resided at Foyer Valade and when I visited him Rose was one of my favorite ladies to say Hi to. She always gave me a hug and a kiss on the cheek when she saw me. I wish I could have seen her one more time but the covid-19 virus made that impossible. R.I.P. Sweet Rose, you'll forever be in my heart. - Posted by: Roxanne Plante (Friend) on: Jun 05, 2021

  • I want to offer my deepest condolences to Andy, Claudette and the rest of the family. - Posted by: Suzanne Frechette (Friend of family ) on: Jun 05, 2021
