was born on February 14th, 1921 in Calgary, Alberta and entered into the joy of her Lord on Christmas Day, December 25th, 2008, to now play in His heavenly orchestra. She reached the age of 87 years, 10 months and 11 days.
Rosalie will be lovingly remembered by two sons, David (Edith) Wright of Canby, Oregon and Mel (Jo-Ann) Wright of Victoria, B.C.; five grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandson; three sisters, Clara Watson of Calgary, Alberta, Carol Larson of Milk River, Alberta and Olive Hanen of Calgary, Alberta; Hubert’s family and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Hubert St. Arnault on June 30th, 1989 after twenty-one years of marriage; one sister, Evelyn Sauer; two half-brothers, Dick and Eddie Pipe and two sisters-in-law, Chris Pipe and Rose Pipe.
Rosalie will be sadly missed by many dear friends who became her “adopted” family. She was “Mom” and “Nana” to those people and through the years they were loved by her in such special ways. She had a deep abiding faith in her Lord, not only read her Bible, but lived out her faith in every day life. No matter how rough life may have been for her at times, she always had a smile on her face, a song in her heart, a favorite Bible verse to share with you along with the assurance that she was praying for you. Her memory will be cherished and we are all so thankful to have been privileged to travel life’s path with her for so many years.
Family and friends are invited to meet at Bethel Funeral Chapel on Friday, January 2nd, 2009 at 2:30 P.M. Together we will take Rosalie to the Pleasant Valley Cemetery where a brief Graveside Service will be held at 3:00 P.M. with Pastor David Gardiner officiating.
As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Rosalie to Global Missions, Box 934, North Battleford, Saskatchewan S9A 2Z3.
The family wish to extend their heartfelt thanks to the Oliver family – Joy, Tanya, Sarah and Ron for all the love and support they gave to Mom during the years she resided in Calgary. God bless you richly.
