It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Rose Everall, age 95 years, on Thursday, December 1, 2022 with family by her side.
Rose was born May 25, 1927 in Ingolf, Ontario to Maria and Samuel Gerylo. She came to Port Arthur in the early 1940's following her fathers passing. She met and married Robert (Bob) Everall and together they raised their four children. She loved baking and her children and grandchildren especially loved her cookies, baking powder biscuits and fresh donuts. She was a skilled gardener and enjoyed canning and making preserves. Rose's home was always a place where you felt welcome and comfortable. She loved to display all of her family photos and welcomed snuggles from her grandchildren and her grand-puppies alike.
She enjoyed all sports and was a devoted Toronto Maple Leafs fan. She loved watching Saturday night hockey games with her family. Rose enjoyed trips to the casino, winning nearly every time and her luck extended to scratch tickets as well. As a family, they enjoyed camping at Lac des Milles Lac. She worked at Canadian Tire for many years, retiring in 1990.
She was a long-time member of the Women of the Moose chapter 1212 and The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 5 Ladies Auxillary where she made many lasting friendships. She was a woman of strong faith and was a member of St. John's Anglican Church.
Rose is survived by her sons, Dick (Gail) and Alan (Mona); daughter Tammy Grieger; Grammie (GramE) to Scott (Laura), Amanda, Jacqueline, Caroline and Jessica and great grandson Gavin. Numerous nieces, nephews and extended family also survive.
Predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Bob; son Randy; parents Samuel and Maria Gerylo and siblings, Bill Gerylo, Anne Robb and Jen Ulmer.
As per Rose's wishes cremation has taken place and a private interment will take place at a later date in Sunset Memorial Gardens. Arrangements have been entrusted to the EVEREST FUNERAL CHAPEL, 299 Waverley Street at Algoma.
