ARTHUR ROSIN (published on August 10, 2009)



ARTHUR ROSIN It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Arthur Rosin on Thursday, August 6, 2009 at the Beausejour Hospital, after a brief battle with cancer. Left to cherish his memory are his wife Edna, daughter Sharon (Ken), son Garry (Maria) and granddaughters Melissa (Kent), Jessica and Marina, daughter Debra and son Brian (Roberta). He is also survived by his sister Margaret and brother Henry. He was predeceased by his brothers Fred and Edwin. Arthur was born to Ertman and Wilhelmine Rosin on February 9, 1926 on the family farm in Green Bay. As a young boy he had a busy life on the farm trapping, hunting and fishing. He was a talented carpenter building kitchen cupboards for his parents and a beautiful staircase at the family farm, as well as many homes and barns in the Green Bay area. In the winter he cut wood and blocks of ice to fit into ice boxes for cottages owned in Campbells' Grove (Brokenhead Park). In 1948 Dad worked at Seven Sisters Powerhouse diamond drilling and blasting rock. He married Mom on October 28, 1950 and moved to Winnipeg where he began his 25 year career with Eaton's and was presented with a gold watch for his years of service. In 1954 they left Winnipeg and moved to Beausejour. Dad commuted to Winnipeg every day by bus and later by car, never missing a day of work even in bad weather. After the closing of Eaton's Mail Order, Dad worked at the sand pit in Beausejour and later drove a school bus for Agassiz School Division. In 1990 he officially retired to the farm in Green Bay where he grew up and was the happiest. Here he was raising pigeons, planting trees, cutting grass and growing a large garden. Dad loved the farm and all the wildlife, especially the wood ducks for which he built may houses and the deer which he provided salt licks. Dad was always happiest to have his family home to visit and made sure there was lots of food in the house. Thanks for Dr. Zeiler and all the wonderful staff at the Beausejour Hospital. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, August 11 at 1:00 p.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Avenue East, Beausejour with Rev. Bart Coleman officiating. Interment will follow in the Beausejour Town Cemetery. Viewing will be on Monday, August 10 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and one hour prior to the service. We'll miss you Dad Love, your family SOBERING FUNERAL CHAPEL CREMATORIUM, Beausejour 268-3510 or MB Toll Free 1-877-776-2220
