Rosalie Spargo

The family of Rosalie Spargo are sorry to say that she left us on Friday, October 24, 2014 in Salmon Arm. Rosalie’s children Adrian Spargo (Linda Simmons) and Caroline Grover (Barry) were with her. Mom left as she lived, full of laughter, jokes and stories. Rosalie was born in Cornwall, UK and emigrated to Ontario with husband Sidney in 1957. In addition to raising two happy children, Rosalie had an interesting and varied career, often with senior government offices and retiring after developing a successful consulting practice with her husband and son. Throughout her life she made many friends through work, Aquacise and Service clubs, which she valued very much. Her retirement years were in Salmon Arm, and she never wanted to be any other place. ProBus club friends and also neighbours became a circle of good friends, good times and lately a support network of help. This was to be her last home. Piccadilly Terrace staff and also residents became extended family for the last five years, and close friends were made. The family is very grateful to the Palliative ward staff of Shuswap Lake general Hospital for their care and interest in her well-being.

Drs. Lourens and Currie, are to be commended for prolonging health and extending her life. There will be a Celebration of Life Friday November 14th at Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm, BC at 2:00 p.m. There will be tea and food provided after the service.

In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Johns Church restoration would be appreciated.
