Rose was a special niece to the late Adelina Gradini (late Luigi). Sister-in-law of Mario Brescacin (late Eve) and predeceased by Albino (late Gina), Bruno (late Margorie), Angelo (late Nella), and Carmella Candido (late Joe). Fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews.

Rose was born in Italy and came to Sault Ste. Marie in the early fifties. She started working at various restaurants but will most fondly be remembered as the attendant at King Koin Laundromat. She was close to her many friends in her Estelle Street neighbourhood and within St. Gregory’s church where she was a member of the CWL.

Special thanks to the nurses in the I.C.U. for their compassion and excellent care. Also our appreciation goes to Dr. Wytsma for years of caring for mom. We would also like to acknowledge the staff at Great Northern Retirement Home, where Rose called home for the past ten years.
