We Remember

COTTON, Rosemary Wray

Rosemary passed away peacefully Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at the age of 86.  She is survived by her loving husband Mike (Luv Bug), son Ross Cotton of Calgary, AB, daughters Donna Cotton of Montreal, QC and Nancy Cotton (Kevin Burk) of Kelowna, BC, grandchildren Taylor and Alana Cotton and Reid and Brett Coughlan, brother Bill (Celia) Harper of Calgary, AB, and dear nieces and nephews.

A retired nurse, Rosemary generously donated much of her time volunteering. Her favourite pastimes, hiking and swimming, allowed her to enjoy her passion for nature. Rosemary opened her heart to every person she met and her calm, patient presence and charming humour will be greatly missed by so many.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the Spring of 2019. Should family and friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the SPCA to support her love of animals, www.spca.bc.ca.

    I loved visiting with Rosemary and Mike every June when I was in the Okanagan. We did such interesting things.
    When I gave her a good-bye hug last June, I felt it would be my last one. She was one of my favourite people.

    Randy, Jim and I are so sorry to hear of Aunt Rosemary’s passing. She was a wonderful woman with a great smile and laugh and a big heart. She and Uncle Mike were always very welcoming to us and loved taking us around proudly showing off their neighbourhood. We will always remember her kindness, welcoming spirit and sense of fun. Our thoughts are with all of you and hopefully we will be able to come out west in the spring for her Celebration of Life. My Mom Shirley also sends along her love and wants you to know she is thinking of all of you with fond memories. Wendy
