<div itemprop="description">It is with profound sadness that the family of Rosella Zimmer announce her passing on January 17, 2014, surrounded by the people who meant everything to her, her family. <br /> <br />Rosella was predeceased by her husband Frank (2008), her parents Ben and Anna Dust, and her siblings Louis, Aloysius, Irene, Norbert, Joseph, Marie and Leonard; as well as a number of other cherished Dust and Zimmer family members. <br /> <br />Rosella Margaret was born on September 23, 1925 in Bruno, SK. After graduating from St. Ursula&rsquo;s Academy in Bruno SK, she obtained her teaching certificate and at just 17 years of age began teaching in a one-room schoolhouse in rural SK. In 1946, Rosella accepted a teaching position in Cupar, SK where she met her husband of 60 years, Frank. <br /> <br /> Rosella was the kind of mother, grandmother, great grandmother that every mother hopes they will be and a child would be lucky to have. Rosella will be lovingly remembered and forever missed by her children: Clifford (Sue), Barry, Lorraine (Carl), Carol (Scott) and Gail (Glenn); her grandchildren, Stacey (Chris), Shawn (Janet), Melissa (Peter), Karla (J.P.), Mike, Kyle, Amy (Kris), Derek, Craig and Evan; and her great-grandchildren, Alyssa, Taylor, Scott, Ashton, Logan, Clyde, Ellis, Samuel, Payton and Aubrey. Also survived by sister-in-laws Noreen, Kathleen and Shirley (Harold) and numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. <br /> <br />Rosella&rsquo;s devotion to her Catholic faith was evident by her lifelong involvement in the church, but more importantly, in the way she lived her life and treated others. She was a 50 year member of the CWL. She was legendary for not only remembering family and friends&rsquo; birthdays, anniversaries and other special events, but for also acknowledging their day with a phone call, card or prayer for them. Sometimes it was all three. Rosella was a truly remarkable woman whose unbelievable patience, kindness and concern for others will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her. <br /> <br />A PRAYER SERVICE will be held at St. Joseph the Worker Roman Catholic Church, 1771 Bond Street, Regina, SK on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 8:15 pm, with Marian Grady, officiant. <br /> <br />A MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL will be held at Holy Child Church, 2636 7th Avenue East, Regina, SK on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at 11:00 am with the Very Reverend Lorne D. Crozon, celebrant. <br /> <br />In lieu of flowers, those wishing may make donations in Rosella&rsquo;s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan, 279 3rd Avenue North, Saskatoon, SK S7K 2H8 or the Canadian Cancer Society 1910 McIntyre Street, Regina, SK S4P 2R3 <br /> <br /> Arrangements entrusted to Regina Funeral Home (306) 789-8850.</div>
