ROSALIE RICHMAN (published on March 28, 2011)

ROSALIE RICHMAN (née BLACK) March 18, 1916 March 18, 2011 It is with deep sorrow that our family announces the death of Rosalie Richman on her 95th birthday, after a courageous battle with heart disease. She will be honoured and missed by her daughter Ruthie Snell and husband Victor; her brother Harold and wife June; granddaughters Tamara, Rebecca and her husband Jason, and Simcha; and great-grandson Jonathan, whom she lived to hold and cherish a few months before her death; as well as by many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Alfred; parents David and Lottie; brother Sam; and sisters Cecelia, Edith, and Marion. Rosalie was born in Winnipeg. Her parents were hard-working immigrants who started in business in a confectionery store in Winnipeg's North End, then moved to Oberon, Manitoba during the Depression, and finally to Brunkild, Manitoba in 1922. Rosalie was a very talented artist in drawing, painting, and sculpture, as well as skilled in sewing, gardening, and cooking. She was a highly ethical and principled person, a characteristic she inherited from her parents. Both she and her husband Alfred, who was an artist of some note, filled their house with beauty. Rosalie's honesty, kindness, friendliness, and unselfish devotion to duty made her loved by all whose lives she touched. Her strength of character was forged in trying times, and her philosophy that honesty is the best policy , and live your life to the fullest, because fate has written your end , endured to the end of her life. We wish to acknowledge the devoted care given her by Rowena, the nursing staff on the 4th floor of Grace Hospital, and Dr. George for his skill and compassion and loving care to the end. Donations to Winnipeg Heart and Stroke Foundation or the charity of one's choice would be appreciated.
