Mom lost her battle with cancer on September 21,2022 @ 12:22am at the Red Deer Hospice. Myself and my dad were there with her. Brandy and Shelby were there earlier in the day. There is some peace knowing that in her final days she was able to see everyone important in her life and everyone she loved. Including her grandchildren Austin, Ayden, Blissannie, and Tayt-Lynn, her siblings and their spouses, and her closest friends. In the days and months ahead we anticipate some hefty expenses that Dad just isn’t able to maintain alone. So once again we are asking for any help we can get to help ease his mind after losing the love of his life. 


This is my family and that woman right there in the middle of us all is our rock. And last Saturday our rock hit a wall. That wall came in the form of a cancerous tumour.

Our mother’s strength has always been a sustaining force for our family and having her willpower, her hard as shit attitude, and her resiliency reflected on us is one of our greatest delights.

Our family’s joy and ambience came to an end when our mom, Rose, had a stroke and a series of seizures, and when she was rushed to the hospital, she was diagnosed with a golf ball sized cancerous tumour on the left side of her brain. She was then transferred to Foothills Hospital in Calgary, just about 2 hours away from her home. My dad, Joe now has to travel back and forth every day to be with and see her.

It’s been a week since she was diagnosed, and because she was the family’s rock, her plight has crippled us emotionally, mentally, and financially. It is becoming challenging for us to gather enough money to cover travel costs, accommodation (so that dad doesn’t have to travel back and forth), and money to pay for her anticipated medical bills and any other expenses that might come up.

As much as we wish we could do this on our own, we are in desperate need of generous contributions from well-wishers and supporters. We are requesting generous donations of whatever amount to aid us in paying these costs. Our mother has always been the best wife, mom, and gramma she could be and we need her home since our beloved dad is bereft without her. We will eternally be thankful for any help offered since you will be taking us one step closer to getting her healthier. We wish we could describe how much she means to us, but describing that would be like writing about a storm in its whole fury, or the climbing falling colours of a rainbow, or of a Rose without a thorn.
