1943 ~ 2013
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Rosemarie Heisler announce her passing at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on Monday, December 9, 2013, at the age of 70 years young. Although she suffered a long time, her passing was quite sudden and unexpected. Rosemarie was born on March 31, 1943, in Fox Valley, SK., and moved to Watson, SK. when she was one year old. At the age of 14, the family moved to Medicine Hat where she resided until her passing. Rosemarie was a proud and beloved mother of six children and a wife to Roger Courterille. She was predeceased by her parents, Mary Anna (1998) & Peter (1992); a sister, Irene (1990); three sons in infancy and her daughter, Connie at the age of seven years. Rosemarie will be lovingly remembered by her son, Gary Bollinger of Kamloops; daughter, Priscilla (Gary) of Medicine Hat; six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends. Rosemarie worked hard all her life in factories, bakeries and nursing homes, whatever job she could find where-ever she was living at the time. She especially took pride in her baking and was considered one of the Best of the Best, no one walked away from her door hungry. Rosemarie was the kindest person to all she knew and loved her family unconditionally.
