In Loving Memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of Rosemarie Aro (nee Bourgeois) on May 2, 2023.
Rosie was born June 10, 1949 in Nelson, BC to Louis and Margaret Bourgeois.
She married David Aro in 1968 and set out around Canada to support his Manager Roles with Macleods and ultimately finishing their career at True Value in Trail, BC.

Mom was predeceased by her husband Dave, her parents and brothers Martin and Charlie.
She has two surviving sisters Janice and Jeanette and a brother Frank.
