1927 - 2017
Roseanna Burrell passed away peacefully in her 91st year surrounded by her loving family at Royal Inland Hospital on Boxing Day. Roseanna was born near Kenora Ontario on February 24, 1927. She is survived by her loving husband of 58 years Glen Burrell and her daughters Brenda Christian (Ken) and Kathy Elliott (David). She had five grandchildren that she adored and shared life’s lessons with, Nicholas (Melissa), Vanessa, Justine (Blair), Jonathan and Taryn. She was blessed this summer to have a great grandson, Rowen Reid Smith. Roseanna is also survived by her sister Stella Hill in Ontario and her brother Bill Murray on Vancouver Island.
Grandma was a remarkable woman from humble beginnings that was the foundation of her family and a true friend to many. She walked every day in West Highlands Park, baked and cooked for family and friends and enjoyed every minute with her grandchildren and her regular outings with her closest friends.
In keeping with her wishes, there will not be a service and the family asks that in lieu of flowers you make a donation to your charity of choice and take a memorial walk on a trail or in a place that is full of nature’s gifts to us.
Drake’s Funeral Services have entrusted with the arrangements. Online condolences may be left at DrakeCremation.com
