DRIVER (nee Welch)

Rosemary Carolee

Sadly on April 5, 2010, Rose left us after a short and bravely fought battle with cancer. Predeceased by her daughter-in-law Terri, Rose leaves behind her husband and soul mate John; 9 children: Dawn (Ron), Gord, Mike (Lisa), Tina (Dave), Rick (Laurie), Theresa (Brent), Jim (Jacquie), Kevin (Crystal), David (Lena); 24 grandchildren and extended family (you know who you are). Also left behind are Teeka ad Julie, her four legged companions.

Mom loved the outdoors, especially camping at Port Renfrew. She instilled her love of nature, flowers, rock collecting, music, and a sense of humor in her children and grandchildren; and now her grandchildren have “caught the bug.” Warm thoughts to all our friends and neighbors for their gifts to mom to brighten her days and for those who just lent an ear to help us cope. Many thanks to all the doctors and nurses, but especially to Dr. Baird, nurses Steph and Stephanie for their gentle ways.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice. At Mom’s request, no service will be held.
