It is with great sadness the family announces the sudden and unexpected death of their dear mother, Baba and great Baba Rose Emily Nowoselski 79 years of Lanigan on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at her residence.
Rose was born at home in Tway, SK on February 10, 1940 the first of 11 children to William and Mary Stelmaschuk.
Rose grew up on the family farm in Tway where her family affectionately called her Lilly. She was particularly close to her loving Baba Mary Kostiuk.
Following grade 12 she met and married Fred Nowoselski on August 17, 1957. The two moved to Lanigan where they started a family. Fred and Rose were blessed with three sons; Brad, Brian and Glenn. The loss of Brian at only 3 months of age was a great loss to both. They were married for 37 years, until Fred's passing in 1994.
As a young family there were many fishing and camping trips exploring western Canada and the US. In 2004 Rose and her son Glenn went on a memorable European vacation together.
Family meant everything to Rose, when she was surrounded by family she was the happiest. Within her kitchen you would find her homemade perogies, holopchi, kisto soup and borscht. Even when you thought all the food had run out Rose would quietly disappear into the basement cellar only to reappear restocking the feast she was serving. She was never known to let anyone leave her home hungry. Rose also enjoyed a quiet game of kiaser with her large family and many friends.
Rose proudly worked at the Lanigan Union Hospital as a Nurses Aid for 33 years, a career she loved with a passion. She loved being able to help people and treat them with dignity and respect.
Rose was always on the go with work, family and volunteering. She enjoyed curling for a number of years and was the president for the curling club for a time.
Rose’s faith was a very important part of her life. She maintained a very active life at the Knox United Church helping where and when ever she was needed.
In 2008, Rose & Bud Guenther became the perfect pair. Rose and Bud shared many good times traveling, socializing and enjoying each others company. Rose lost her best friend with Bud's passing in 2017.
Rose will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her two sons, four grandchildren and two great grandchildren: Brad (Jane) Nowoselski of Spruce View, AB and family Adam Nowoselski and Alexandra (Justin) Grove and son Jasper all of Calgary; and Glenn (Mayla) Nowoselski of Martensville and family Presley Nowoselski and daughter Anastasia of Saskatoon and Grayson Nowoselski of Martensville; god-daughter Vicki Chilibecki (Nowoselski), god-son Craig Stelmaschuk, god-daughter & sister Maryann (Don) Lysitza, sister Brenda (Tom) Love, brothers Ernest (Cilvia), Herman (Arlene), David (Grace), Larry (Colleen), Eddie, Jerry (Dyan), Gary, Randy Stelmaschuk; numerous nieces and nephews
