It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife and mother, Rosalie, on August 6, 2021, at the Pincher Creek Health Centre.
She was born in St. Vincent’s Hospital in Pincher Creek, the youngest of ten children, to William and Eva Bruder (nee Ullian). She attended Marr School until Grade 6, then continued at Kermaria Convent where she received her musical education. She married Emil Levesque in 1954 and they enjoyed life and laughs together every day for the next 67 years.
She spent her life in service to family and church, working as the parish secretary and pipe organist (self-taught!) for nearly 50 years, retiring reluctantly at age 82.
She enjoyed knitting and needlepoint and was well known for her delicious huckleberry pies. She loved spending time at their cabin in Beaver Mines and hosted many memorable pig roasts and BBQs. But most of all, she loved to pick berries and shared her jam with many.
She is survived by her loving husband Emil and daughter Laura Miller (Jack), her sister Agatha McRae and numerous nieces and nephews.
We would like to thank Dr. Daniel Ruttle and all the staff at Pincher Creek Health Centre, Home Care and Whispering Winds for their kindness and compassionate care.
A Memorial Mass was held at 1:00 P.M., on Friday August 13, 202, at St. Michael’s Catholic Church (958 Christie Ave, Pincher Creek, AB) with Reverend Myles Gafney Officiating.
Memorial Donations may be made to the Windy Slopes Health Foundation, P.O. Box 2554, Pincher Creek, AB., T0K1W0.
