BRYANT, Rose Marie

July 23, 1955 – September 5, 2013

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our mother, Rose Marie Bryant on Thursday, September 5th, 2013. Though recently diagnosed with cancer, treatment had barely begun and the end was sudden.

Rose will be forever missed by: her daughters, Aimee, Sarah (Jason), and Rebecca (Christian); and her granddaughters, Ella and Hawksley. She was predeceased by her parents, Gertrude and Norman Baker and by her elder sister, Bonnie Falconer.

Rose was an excellent cook and baker, an outstanding pickler and preserver, and an incomparable knitter. Like her own mother, she had a deeply ingrained desire to nurture and protect others. Her friends and co-workers in the camp kitchens of Northern Alberta will always remember her kindness, her skill and her dedication. We are most grateful to her for being the best listener and biggest supporter we will ever know.

No matter where she was living, Rose always considered Vernon home. She was laid to rest with a graveside service at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery on September 10th, 2013. In lieu of flowers or gifts, we encourage donations to the charity of your choice. Arrangements have been entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. Condolences may be offered at
