Rose Marie Plecas
July 1927 – July 2011
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rose Marie Plecas. Rose died peacefully at Traveller’s Lodge with her family by her side. Rose is predeceased by her husband Bob, her son Robert Jr., her brothers Sam, Bill and John and her sisters Anne, Mary and Betty. She is survived by her loving family Ron (Sharen) Plecas, Dan (Barb) Plecas, daughters Sharry (Dave) Curry, Lorilei (Bradley) Thompson, 13 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren, sister Lil as well as many nieces and nephews.
Rose was born in Birch River, Manitoba to Sam and Florence Bowman. Most of her childhood she enjoyed Chilliwack and Vancouver until she met the love of her life Bob and they married May 5, 1945. Bob and Rose moved to Nanaimo where they raised their 5 children. Rose spent her life dedicated to her family. If she wasn’t sewing, knitting, gardening or making doll houses, she was enjoying her love of sports and traveling.
Bob and Rose’s gardens won awards in the city of Nanaimo. Her grandchildren will forever cherish the dolls and wall hangings their Gramma made for them. Always a smile and a hug were yours to enjoy when you paid Rose a visit.
Many thanks are extended to Dr. Baird for his kindness and care given to Rose and to the staff of Traveller’s Lodge a big thank you!
A family picnic will be held in the middle of August to celebrate Rose’s life.
