Memories Timeline


  1. She was such a nice lady and it seems she went out of this world much like she lived her life,,,,peacefully, like a true lady, and with her dear sister by her side. She was lucky to have so many friends but more lucky to have such a great relationship with her sister who was always with her. She will be sorely missed by a lot of people.

  2. I’m sorry not to have had the chance to meet her. I know that she and her sister Cheryl are beloved by my good friend Sherry, their niece, and so she must’ve been a wonderful person. Go in peace.

  3. In honor of her passion for crosswords, today’s puzzle consists of only one clue for a single four-letter word … “A gentle lady and a great Aunt” R-O-S-E

  4. tO THE FAMILY OF ROSE BENNETT,(especially Sherry Wykstra) My heartfelt sympathy to you at this time of loss. She was a lovely person and very influential and special in my friend Sherry’s life. May God hold you close with the comfort only He can give, and may you all be comforted by your faith and memories as you go about your lives without this special loved one in this world.
