ROSE, Rita Ann....

With heavy hearts, the family of Rita Ann Rose (nee Capitano) announces her peaceful passing on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at Victoria Hospital, London in her 65th year. Beloved wife of the late Charles Leslie "Les" Rose for 35 years. Loving mother of Heather Rose and Meaghan Higgins (Jason). Proud Nana of Mira, Zeya, Benaiah, Ethan, Bain, Kale and Reid.

Rita was born in London, Ontario. She had a lengthy career of 35+ years at Canada Post.

A heartfelt thank you to the Oncology and CCTC staff at LHSC for their excellent care during her courageous battle with leukemia.
