Obituary of Rose Mary Verrall

Rose Mary Verrall formally of Airdrie, Alberta passed away peacefully after a long and courageous battle with dementia on May 16, 2019 in Strathmore, Alberta.

Rose was predeceased by her husband, Stan in 2007 and oldest son Robert (Bob) in February 2019. Rose is survived by three children, Judy, Marcia (Mike) and Mark (Rebecca); five grandchildren, Greg (Kim), Leighanne (Andrew), Angela (Dave), Micheila and Sophie; four great grandchildren, Ava, Aubree, Nixon and Parker; two sisters, Phyllis (Sid) Rudman and Betty Bonnett; along with her nieces and nephew.

Mom and Dad ran the concession at the Airdrie Plainsmen Arena before she was asked to manage the kitchen and bar at the Ron Ebbesen Arena, where she worked until her retirement in 2001. She enjoyed camping, going with Dad on his long Sunday drives and our family “cancelled” BBQ’s.

In keeping with Mom’s wishes there will be no memorial service, she will be cremated and her ashes spread with Dad’s at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made to the Alzheimer Society at or the Poppy Fund at
