Born in Vancouver, BC on April 19, 1923. She raised three daughters in Powell River, BC and finally moved to Nanaimo in 1982 where she lived until coming to stay with her daughter in 2012.

Rose slipped away peacefully on March 24, 2013 at home in the care of her family. She was the first daughter, but the second child, of the late Vincenzo & Giovannina Sanzalone. She was predeceased by her husband Kurt (2008), her brother Dominick Sanzalone (1980) and her sister Angelina Power (2012). She will be lovingly remembered & deeply missed by her three daughters Rema Stroink (Bruce), Lorie Steiben (Grant) and Lesa Reilly (Mike), Mike Heinrich, Sigi Willett (Glen), ten grandchildren and six great grand-children.

Rose will be remembered for a lifetime of helping others in a kind, gentle way. We shall all miss her quiet presence.
