Four Generations of Devoted Service
In the Selkirk area and Interlake Since 1935
Passed peacefully on August 24, 2019 at Sunnywood Manor in Pine Falls, MB, at 102 years of age. Rose is lovingly remembered by her sons Ken (Gail), Don (Delores),and daughter-in-law Fern; grandchildren Bill, Carolyn (Steve), Kristy, Tim (Veronika), Barclay (Lisa), and Larissa (William); great-grandchildren Cambree, Kaylee, and Annika; sister-in-law Helen Kush, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
She was predeceased by her husband of 50 years Nick Smorang; her parents Michael and Anna Kush, son Carl Smorang, and brothers Nick Kush and Sam Kush. Rose was named after her maternal grandmother Rose Shuhyta (Harry).
Rose was a loving and caring person who was cheerful, friendly and enjoyed life to the fullest. She was effortlessly easygoing and keenly interested in the world around her. This sense of curiosity and lifelong learning lent itself to her wisdom, her good health, her fortitude, and her sharp memory and sense of humour.
