Rose Hnatiuk (nee Letniak)
September 19, 1931 – February 20, 2021
With great sadness, the family announces Rose’s passing on February 20, 2021 at Red River Place in Selkirk, Manitoba.
Rose will be remembered with love by her children Tony (Tara), Joyce Dimaggio, Andy (Diane) and grandchildren, Michael, Kyle, and Candice. She will be sadly missed by her brother Steve Letniak (Linda), sister Pauline Finlay, as well as many other family members and friends. She was predeceased by her parents Joseph and Caroline, son-in-law Joe, brother-in-law Roy and companion William Dushman.
Rose was born in Fraserwood, Manitoba where she spent her childhood. As a young adult, she moved to Winnipeg. After graduating from United College, she worked at several places and then raised her children. Her commitment to help others led her to become a volunteer and a caregiver. One of her most notable and rewarding accomplishments was to help establish and run the Winnipeg Buyer’s Club to assist low-income families.
Years later, Rose returned to Fraserwood. She loved living on the farm and was the happiest there. She was an avid gardener and enjoyed raising chickens, ducks, and geese. She also loved to bake, cook, and knit for her family and friends.
Rose was a quiet, gentle, and loving person. With her strong inner spirit, she was able to endure many hardships. She had a heart of gold and will be forever remembered for her kindness, compassion, and generosity.
A special thanks to the doctors, nurses, and staff at Red River Place for their care and compassion.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice.
