Rose was born in Timmins, ON to Lillian and Nick Piperno on December 20, 1941.
Rose attended Timmins High where she met Bill, they married on September 05, 1959, and raised their four cherished children, living also in Calgary, Alberta, prior to moving to Brooklin, ON in 1965. Rose was a dedicated and loving mother, always supporting, and inspiring the best in each of her children. Rose was thrilled to become a grandmother, and a great grandmother, she loved babies.
With Bill, Rose was an active member of the Brooklin/Whitby community, where she was a girl guide leader, worked as a church secretary in Brooklin for 8 years, and had many dear friends. Rose and Bill loved to travel, visiting Hawaii for their 25th anniversary, Italy for their 50th anniversary, and enjoyed many winters in their Florida home. Rose and Bill enjoyed a life of many celebrations, recently marking their 60th Anniversary. Their enduring love for each other shone through in their daily life, Bill still referred to Rose as his beautiful bride.
Rose loved learning, and returned to school to become a nurse, graduating with honors at the age of 50. She furthered her education with courses in mental health, palliative care, and obtained her pharmacy assistant certification, to then work at the Whitby Psychiatric Hospital for 10 years.
Rose was a woman of great faith, which despite her many health challenges, remained steadfast. She looked to scripture, and the Lord for guidance in all things. She loved Bill, and her family, deeply and unconditionally.
Dear Rose, Rest in Heavenly Peace.

To my dear precious sister-in-law, Rosie:
I know that you have graduated with flying colours and, by now, have already heard the Words, "well done, Rosie, My good and faithful servant...enter into the joy of your rest!"

It was such an honour to know you over these many years. You were such a good hearted person, caring, intelligent, noble, loyal and loving. You were a good wife and Mom to all your dear family. Rosie, we have shared abundant special memories together.and they will always be a treasure to me. I can't adequately express how grateful I am to have had you as a part of my life. I love you! You have been such a blessing to me and I will miss you, dear Rosie, but it will be a great day when we meet up on the other side!

To my dear brother, Bill:
What a pleasure and joy to know that my brother married such a special person. Rosie was beautiful on the inside and out. You two created such an awesome journey together. I have always thought and said that you were the perfect couple. Thank you so much for sharing your lives with me, along with your darling children, whom I love. Watching them growing up has been a privilege and pleasure.
My heart is with you and your amazing family.
Love, Marilyn
