FISKE: T. ROSE (nee Moore)

December 8, 1915 to January 11, 2015. Rose died peacefully, surrounded by family, on January 11, 2015 at the age of 99 years. A long-time resident of Summerland, she also lived in Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna. Predeceased by her husband, Humphrey, in 1959, Rose became an unintentional champion of women’s rights as she sought “equal pay for equal work” in her efforts to raise her family. When she retired, she worked part-time at the Okanagan Regional Library – a job she absolutely adored. Rose is survived by her brother, Herb Moore; her three children, James, Carol, and Jo-Anne; her two grandchildren, Andrea and Cheryl ; and her great-grandchildren, Shayla, Callum, Hamish and Libby. Rose will be remembered for her adventurous spirit; her love of travel, crosswords and reading; and her delicious baking (especially her legendary cinnamon buns!) . A memorial service will take place in Summerland this Spring. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.firstmemorialfuneralkelowna.com.
