It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Ettie Rose Dean on December 27, 2011 at the Youville Home in St. Albert Alberta at the age of 94 years. She was born in Rosedale, AB on September 11, 1917.
At a young age she helped raise her siblings Elton, John, Allan and Hazel. With her husband, Stan they settled in Hay River in 1946 where Rose played an active role in the community. They spent many years in Hay River and started a family business. Together they retired in Salmon Arm BC.
In recent years Rose moved to Edmonton and St. Albert, AB to be near family. She was a kind, generous woman, loved by many, and maintained a wide circle of friends. After living a long, fulfilled life, Rose passed peacefully.
