It is with heavy hearts that the family of Rose Alexander (Aronec) announce her passing on Sunday, May 8, 2022 at the age of 96 years.

Rose grew up in Danbury, Sask. She attended Brush Valley School, completed her Grade 10. At age 16, worked at a country store near Hyas, Sask. In 1944, her mother got ill then passed away when Rose was 18. Rose moved to Winnipeg & worked in a Bakery.  She met Randall at a dance. They married in Winnipeg on January 24, 1953, a total of 57 years.

In spring, they moved permanently to the farm at Eatonia, the rest of their children Allan, March 1955; Corinne, March 1956; Danny, February 1959; Kathy, February 1961 all born in Eatonia Union Hospital. By 1968 a new house was built in Eatonia. The family then lived in town for the winter, farm in the summer.
