ROSE MARIE KITTLESON, beloved wife of 56 years to Alan Kittleson, of Lethbridge, passed away peacefully at St. Therese Villa, on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at the age of 91 years.

Rose is survived by her children, Linda (Bill) Fraser, Gloria (Chris) Oates, Donna (Robin) Soenen and Norman (Shannon) Kittleson, as well her 13 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by one grandson, two brothers, three sisters and her parents.

Born in rural Saskatchewan, Rose grew up in Orion, Alberta. She met her beloved husband, Alan, in Barons in 1959 and they were married in Lethbridge in 1962. They raised their family on the family farm in Barons and retired in Lethbridge.

Alan & Rose travelled extensively with family and friends and they looked forward to their annual winter months golfing in Southern California.

Rose loved knitting, crocheting and needle-points and stayed active by golfing and bowling. One of her proudest accomplishments was winning the Senior Ladies Golf Tournament at the Keho Lake Golf Course, where she also got a hole-in-one!

At Rose’s request, no formal funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity one’s choice.
