Rose Gertrude Reed

June 24, 1915 - April 27, 2012


Rose Gertrude Reed

Rose Reed passed away peacefully at home on Friday, April 27th, 2012.

Rose was born on June 24th, 1915 in Glenwood, Alberta, the first of eight children, to Lucile and Ernest Bohne. During the Depression, Lucile and Ernest moved to the farm where Rose and her brothers and sisters grew within the warmth and closeness of deep family ties. The children rode their horses five miles to school in Glenwood; during the winter they travelled the route by horse-drawn sled with warmed rocks about their feet.

Rose Gertrude Bohne married DeLane Harrod Reed December 7th, 1939, settled in Lethbridge, Alberta and raised three children – Connie, Dixie and Philip.

The family moved to Nelson in 1959 when the CPR roundhouse closed in Lethbridge.

Rose was an excellent seamstress. She was a long-time member of the Ladies” Auxiliary to the Fraternal Order of Eagles. She volunteered at the Red Cross. And, she worked a number of years for Judge Evans.

After retirement, Rose and Dee travelled frequently throughout the United States and Canada, and from coast to coast in Australia.

Rose was predeceased by her husband DeLane in 1987, her brothers Bruce and Kemmer, and sisters Vernetta and Lynn.

Rose will be deeply missed by her loving family – daughters Connie and Dixie and son Philip and his wife Kim; brother Winston and sisters Maida (LeVerre) and Wilma of Alberta, as well as many nieces, nephews, church brothers and sisters, and friends.

Special thanks to the LDS Relief Society for their faithful care and support. Also, special thanks to Dr. Murray for his kindness and devotion to our mother”s well being.
