After a courageous battle with cancer, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Fern Eileen Rose on June 22, 2019 at the age of 60 years.

Fern is lovingly remembered by her son and daughter and their spouses, Frank and Serena Rose, and Trisha and Jesse Forsyth; her grandchildren Finnly and Felix Rose, Benjamin and Gabrielle Forsyth; her mother Joyce Yarham; brothers Lance and Larry Yarham; sister-in-law Joanne Yarham; and numerous extended family and friends.

Fern was predeceased by her father William Yarham and husband Don Rose.

Fern proudly worked as a registered nurse for over 30 years.  Her generous spirit, strength and love of her family and friends was obvious to anyone she met.  She will be forever missed.

The family wishes to thank the nurses at the Leduc Community Hospital for their compassion and kind care.

A Memorial Service will be held in Manning, Alberta at a later date.  Fern’s final resting place will be in the Anglican Cemetery in Fort Vermilion, Alberta.

I’m so sorry to hear this. I worked with your mom in Whitecourt, such a great nurse. Her compassion, knowledge and sense of humour made all shifts with her a pleasure to work. She often spoke of her family and it was truly evident how much she loved all of you. My deepest condolences.

My deepest condolences to the family. I worked with Fern for a number of years and when I was supervising her, appreciated how much she was respected by the members of the community. She has left this world way too soon, and heaven has certainly gained a wonderful person.
