ROSALIE SAINT-AUBIN VANWART
She was born on April 11, 1933, in the depths of the Great Depression, a true child of hope and confident determination, and in this spirit, she was intrepid throughout her entire life. This life filled with many magic moments came to an earthly end on October 22, 2018 in Edmundston, New Brunswick in her 86th year, after a long struggle with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
This spirited young lady who became a long-time loyal resident of her adopted and beloved New Brunswick, was born in Riverside (Windsor), Ontario. Her father, Alibert Saint-Aubin, and mother, Edna Mailloux, both predeceased, uprooted their small family in the depths of the Depression and brought them to economic safety in the small village of Ramore in Northern Ontario.
Rosalie's self-assurance was engendered within a bright tapestry whose fabric was woven lovingly over the years by her parents and older brothers. She grew up with a spirit of adventure and discovery, but also of service and duty rooted in a classic faith. Her education at L'Académie Sainte-Marie in Haileybury, led her to choose a life path of service to others in healthcare.
She became a nurse after graduating from the St-Elizabeth School of Nursing in Sudbury and chose the field of community care within the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON). Many would later recount tearfully how she had cared so compassionately for their loved ones.
She was posted to Edmundston, where in 1958, she married James R. Vanwart.
Jim, an almost confirmed bachelor of Loyalist descent, was swept off his feet by Rosalie. Together, they operated the landmark VanWart Drugs Ltd. which closed its doors after serving this gateway community to the Maritimes for over 80 years. They lived and loved until his death in 2011 sharing a devotion to pharmaceutical care as they served their community side by side.
She was a strong person who took a back seat to no one, and at times she could be a force of nature whose resolve to accomplish what she felt needed to be done would brook no disagreement. But her elegance and effervescence could also charm and delight, and she could bring zestful life to her surroundings.
Jim and Rosalie were blessed with three children, son, Daniel (Leslie Clow); daughter, Christine; and daughter, Julie (Frank Timm); each much anticipated and each a source of great pride. She delighted in her six grandchildren, Ava, Grace, Olivia, Samuel, Nicholas, and Maximilian. She was a great friend and counselor to her brothers and sister, namely Jérôme and Daniel (both predeceased), André, Françoise and Etienne. She was an undisputed "favourite aunt" and would enjoy regular visits from her family.
Cremation has taken place, and a Funeral Mass will be celebrated on December 8, 2018, the Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception, at 11:00 a.m.
at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Edmundston, followed by a reception. When consulted about the anticipated attendance at this reception, a close friend opined with sadness that most who had known her had themselves passed away. This brought to mind the haunting words of a tender song: "God remembers when the world forgets." God will no doubt remember a vibrant life lived with faith-filled passion.
In lieu of flowers, simple acts of kindness and forgiveness would best honour her memory. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to McAdam's Funeral Home, 160 York Street, Fredericton.
On Sunday, December 2, 2018, at Valleyview Nursing Home. Lovingly remembered by cousins Mark Binstock, Richard Pounds, and by all who knew her. Special thanks to the staff at Sunrise, Valleyview and to caregivers Marietta, Ruby, Nenita, Beatrice, Juvy, and Jonalyn for the care they provided.
At Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel, 2401 Steeles Avenue West (3 lights west of Dufferin) for service on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, at 11:30 a.m. Interment Beth David B'nai Israel Beth Am Section of Pardes Chaim Cemetery.
