In memory of
KNIGHT, Rose Rose slipped away suddenly on November 2, 2008 at the age of 86. She was one of the "Rosies of the North", who supported the Allied effort during WWII by working at the Canada Car in Fort William, Ontario. There she met and married her husband, Denis Knight, C.A., and together they shared life's adventures for fifty-two years. Loving mother of Sandra and numerous friends "adopted" over the years. Rose lived every day fully and thankfully. She enjoyed an active and rewarding life, enriching the lives of those who knew her. Her empathy, affection, easy conversation and sense of humour endeared her to all she met, especially Milica Petrovic and Marica Vreca who took such loving care of her during her final months. Sincere thanks to Margaret Griffiths, and the staff at St. Patrick's Home who provided support, comfort and compassionate care during this difficult journey. Rose will be sorely missed by her sister and brother-in-law, Anizia and Waldo Milligan, Newmarket, Ontario, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins in Newmarket and Kenora. She will be fondly remembered by friends in Winnipeg, Vancouver and Thunder Bay, as well as the Palisades and Edinburgh Retirement Residences. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Ottawa Mission or the Ottawa Humane society would be appreciated. Private interment in Beechwood Cemetery. As a tribute to Rose, perform a random act of kindness today.
