It is with great sadness that we are announcing that our beloved Rosemary Sarah Lillian Wladyka unexpectedly passed away on the early morning of July 16, 2023, with her beloved family by her side at the St Boniface Hospital.
Left to mourn her tragic loss are her children, Deborah (Robert), Robert (Fatima), Brenda (Randy), Joyce, and David (Roberta) along with her sisters Gloria and Judy, brothers Wayne (Selda) and Ralph (Susan) along with so many of loving grandchildren and great grandchildren all of which mourn her untimely passing.
She will also be so tragically missed by her many friends especially Joanne (Ron), Leeha (John), Cheryl, and Gwen (Pete) and by her many neighbors all of which her cared about and loved over the years.
She will be especially missed by her ever devoted and loving husband William who worshipped the ground she walked upon over their 52+ years together.
Rosemary was born in Nova Scotia and came from a large family and had 11 siblings. She was kind, warm, loving and a very giving person and was so very proud of all her children. She worked hard but always made time for her family, friends, and all the people and special times in her life.
She will always be forever remembered as a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend by so many. She loved to watch and look after the many wild little creatures that forever inhabited her backyard and virtually had names for almost all of them.
She worked alongside her husband for many years but still had time to undertake several successful additional careers over the years such as becoming a real-estate agent and even a motel manager for a time.
She was the Director of Student Services for the Fit For Life® Sciences Institute and The College of Natural Health where she helped, aided, and mentored literally hundreds of students/clients from all over the world to graduate and excel in the fields of natural health and the hygienic sciences.
The family would like to thank the staff at St Boniface Hospital and the emergency responders that got her there for their wonderful, immediate, and compassionate care.
To respect Rosemary’s stated wishes there will be no formal services or funeral. In lieu of flowers donations could be made in her name to any no-kill animal shelter rescue or humane society, or to the Canadian Lung Association.
ROSEMARY’S LAST WISH
When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears;
Be happy that we had so many years
I gave to you, my love; you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for all the love you each have shown,
But now it’s time I traveled on alone.
So, grieve for a while for me if grieve you must;
Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
It's only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on;
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see me or touch me, I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All of my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say: "Welcome Home".
PLEASE REST IN PEACE
MY LOVELY AND LOVING WIFE.
