Rose Elsie Carver


August 27, 1937 to January 24, 2003


Following her unforgiving demise, Rose was born into Heaven! Impatiently awaiting her arrival, donned in party attire, was her inseparable husband Joe and her divine daughter Cathy. Upon her entrance they shouted "Yes"! Also in attendance was her father Steve, her brothers Mike, Paul and John, sister Stella, brother-in-law Walter and nephews Randy and John.

On Earth, she relinquished her monumental love to her 95 year old mother Frances Zabloski, her daughters Toni (Roy), Kelly and Lee-Anne (Chris), her grandchildren Lindsay, Cassidy and MaKenna Dokuchie, GiAnna and Mario Scarcello and Bronson Carver. As well as she leaves behind brothers Pete (Dorothy) Zabloski, Joe (Jeanine) Zabloski, Bill (Mary) Zabloski, Deke (Dorothy) Zabloski and Walter Zabloski, sisters Mary Strawa and Anne (Bob) Gosse as well as her dear friend and sister-in-law, Doreen Zabloski and Rose Zabloski (sister-in-law). Untold nieces and nephews, but special nieces Sherri and Cindy Zabloski and God-child, Judy Krumbacher.

Our mothers life was built on random acts of kindness and compassion. Her love was not in what she kept but in what she gave away! She was like a butterfly - if you touched her, she rubbed off on you.

Mom ALWAYS put others before herself and never acknowledged the word "Me". She exuded benevolence. Mom wouldn't want anyone to know what she did nor for whom. Those whom she awakened will remember!

Mom's knitting needles were like sixth fingers to her while her hands were a blur over her winsome creations. She and wool were undetachable. She also excelled at cross-stitch, sewing, baking, candy-making, recycling, preserves, gardening and ceramics. Most recently gambling captured her attention. The tours to Winnipeg fetched her untold delight. She, however, managed only to win the hearts of her fellowship.

Mom held faultless allegiance to the elderly and sick and frequented all institutions to become a fixture. She was affectionately dubbed "The Candy Lady"

Mom was an unsurpassable employee of the Town of Kenora for 45 years. She took pride in her position and endeared the value of the taxpayer AND those on fixed incomes. After her retirement, she consistently presented her concerns to council on behalf of her community. Rose died quietly fighting for her pension from the City.

Our Mom was the perfect mother; so much we've heard others wish she was their own! You can't beat that! She was, as well the most nurturing Baba.

Prayers will be held at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, January 30 at Saint Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church with Father Daren Gallivan (her confidante) officiating. She will be cremated and her service will be at 10:00 a.m. Friday, January 31, as above.

Honorary pallbearer is her brother Deke. Honorary companions are Doreen, Sherri, and Cindy Zabloski, Signe LaCombe, JoAnne Zrobock, Susan Wilson, Norma White, Karen Jorgenson, Arlee Camarado, Mrs Warner Barb Latham, Verna Wright, Norma Robinson, Joanie Kinger, Judy Morgan, Don McCleod, Stu Campbell, Anne Baker, Mrs Shewchuk, Lynne Bruce, Audrey Reischel, June Motherall... in fact, all in attendance!

We don't know where to stop without forgetting someone whom she kept so dear; she held all equal.

Mom will return to the field she could not

forget. She left a bit of her heart there each time and we hope to make it a whole once more. All are welcome to join the procession (If you like, bring candle in a container).

Luncheon to follow at the church hall.

In lieu of flowers, whatever it is Mom did for you, she'd be over the moon if you would simply "Pay it Forward."


Vichnaya Pamyat!

From the Tree of Life, each leaf must fall-
The green, the gold, the great, the small...

Each one in God's own time, He'll call-
With perfect love, He gathers all.

We find comfort knowing our
loved ones are with God,
resting in perfect peace.

"For everything there is a season,
and a time for every matter under heaven."
Ecclesiastes 3:1

Always loved, never forgotten.
