Rose "Rosie" Marie McNernie September 30, 1945 – April 11, 2017 Rose Marie McNernie, "Rosie" was called home to be with her Lord and Saviour, on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. Rose Marie McNernie was born on September 30, 1945 to Anthony and Eva Usselman, in Saskatoon, SK. Rosie was raised in and around Allan, SK. She was the only daughter of three siblings. She attended a one-room school-house and enjoyed her time on the farm, tending to her kittens and helping her mom with chores. Rosie married and settled in Bradwell, SK, where she raised her most treasured gifts, her son Randy and daughter Laneise. She could not be more proud of both of her children. Rosie was gifted with so many talents: music, gardening, dancing, cooking, baking and sewing. She loved the outdoors, particularly the wildlife. She loved to see deer out in the field and sit and watch birds perch on her birdhouses, just outside her bay window. She often would share that she wished she could fly. Although Rosie's illness progressed very aggressively, her trust and unwavering faith in God, shone throughout this time. Although many prayers were prayed for healing, God's plan was to call her home in the early morning hours of April 11, 2017, with her daughter by her side. Her courageous spirit through this short journey was an inspiration to so many. Rosie, will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her children Randy (Monica) McNernie and Laneise (Troy) Atema; along with her six grandchildren, Leighton, Kessler, Max, Hunter, Jet and Ewan. She was predeceased by her parents, Anthony and Eva Usselman, and her brother, Andrew. The family would like to extend sincere gratitude to Dr. Valerie Smith, Mrs. Sandy Schoenknecht, and all the caregivers at Sunrise Village. Your hard work, loving support and kind words spoken to Rosie, have not gone unnoticed and will never be forgotten.
