Our beloved Rosalie Gibney passed away peacefully at age 100, on Sunday, November 10, 2019, surrounded by loving family. Rosalie was born January 16, 1919 in Insinger, SK to Sophie and Ben Glass. She married the love of her life, Sam Gibney of Yorkton in 1943. Long-time residents of Yorkton, they raised three children, owned and operated Gibney’s Men’s Wear for over forty years and were active members of the community. Rosalie attained her Diploma of Piano from the Toronto Conservatory by age 16. She was a talented pianist, passionate bridge player and a close and loyal friend to many. She had an innate wisdom, a positive outlook and a joy of life. Rosalie moved to Wintergreene Estates in Regina in 2015 where she enjoyed residing and making new friendships.
Rosalie was predeceased by her husband, Sam, her parents, brothers Mel and Irving. She is survived by, and will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Sandra (Roxby) Hughes of St. Albert, AB, grandsons Craig and Braden; her son James (Maureen) of Calgary, AB, grandson Tyler, granddaughter Leigh (Graham), great grandsons Oliver and Leo; daughter Susan Mehlsen of Regina Beach, SK, grandson Leif (Stephanie), great grandchildren Isla and August, grandson Erik and granddaughter Alix; cousin Harriette Tax of Purdys, NY and many dear nieces and nephews. Rosalie cherished her family above all else. We would like to thank the caring staff at Wintergreene Estates and the Pasqua Hospital.
There will be a celebration of Rosalie’s life and internment next spring in Yorkton.
