rose marie

 ("Second Hand Rose" at Misner's Flea Market, Hamilton)

It is with great sadness that we wish to announce the passing of Rose Hermiston at the age of 85, peacefully at her residence on August 3, 2019.

Devoted wife of the late Bill Hermiston. Former wife of the late Herman Lang. Loving Mother of Fred (Fran), the late Peter (Petrus) and the late Herman. Devoted and cherished Oma of Joshua and Cameron. Dear sister of Johanna Blanchette and the late Brigitte Loy. Dear Auntie of Brigitte, Norman, Christina and Yoachim.

Rose's wish was for a private cremation with scattering of her cremated remains at a later date in Nova Scotia. If desired, memorial donations may be made in memory of Rose to the Heart and Stroke foundation. Arrangements entrusted to Bocchinfuso Funeral Home.

Memories and Condolences
