Predeceased by her husband John, her daughter Marianne, her parents Rudolf Martsch and Mary (Martin) Martsch, her brothers Arthur Martsch (Shirley) and William Martsch and her step-mother Eva Martsch, also predeceased by her stepmother Eva Martsch. While raising five children, she found time to be a reliable community and church volunteer. She was also active in the Catholic Women’s League. She was an avid gardener with a green thumb for her flowers and plants. She excelled at cooking and baking and enjoyed sharing that with everyone. She enjoyed sewing. She especially loved spending time with family. Despite the challenges of the last few years, she always found joy in nature’s beauty and she continued to enjoy her music. The family would like thank the staff at Chartwell Retirement Home Elmira and Trinity Village Care Centre Kitchener, for the care and compassion provided to Rose during her stays with them.
