1922 – ROSE FRIED – 2021

Posted: December 17th, 2021

Rose was born on February 18th, 1922 at Irvine, AB and was brought up on the family farm at Hilda, AB. Her family attended Hilda Baptist Church where they made many friends and she participated in the youth group and choir. In her youth, Rose decided to become a Christian and follow Jesus. During the 30’s, her family moved to Olds, AB to farm. After finishing school, Rose attended Bible College at CTI in Edmonton. Following CTI, she worked at a children’s orphanage in the Chicago area and then worked two years as a nanny in Rochester, N.Y. before returning to Olds. Rose’s parents moved to Kelowna, where she met her future husband, Helmut Fried. They married on October 20th, 1949, at East Olds Baptist Church. They began farming in Olds and continued to farm there for 30 years. They were blessed with three children. In 1980, the Fried farm relocated to Swan River, MB where they continued farming with their sons. In 1992, Helmut and Rose relocated to South Country Village in Medicine Hat. Helmut passed away in 2008. Rose moved into assisted living and then to Sunnyside in 2015 until her passing on December 11th, 2021. Rose’s legacy was homemaking; a loving mother and wife who always put the needs of others first. She was an example to her family and Rose demonstrated a strong faith in God. Rose was always hospitable, an excellent cook. At Sunnyside, she was always concerned about those who were serving her, and deeply cared for the residents, volunteers and staff. The Lord blessed her with 59 wonderful years of marriage, three children, nine grandchildren and their spouses, and 17 great-grandchildren. Rose loved her family and upheld them in prayer by name daily. She was predeceased by her parents, John and Minnie Weiss; sisters, Mabel and Pearl; and brothers, Harold and Roy. She is survived by sons, Marvin (Flo) and Bryon (Linda); daughter, Marryl (Steve Dole); her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Gloria Weiss; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
