Verna G. (Age 89)
A private graveside service was held at the Pines South Cemetery on March 2, 2011 for Verna Grace Sturdy Rosier. Verna entered the Irish universe, Sunday, February 27, 2011, greeted by the entire clan waving four-leaf clovers and toasting a little Irish whiskey. She was born to Thomas L. and Lilly Mae Sturdy in Stettler, Alberta, Canada on June 8, 1921 and spent her formative years in Red Deer and Calgary, Alberta. She immigrated to the U.S. in 1938 and married Wilburt A. Rosier in 1939. Verna is survived by her three children, Gordon W. of Sun City, AZ, Glen D. of Spokane, and Doreen V. MacPherson of Twin Lakes, ID. Additionally, her clan includes five grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and five great-great-grandchildren. Verna suffered with heart disease most of her life, and finally her little heart decided to pump one last time. At her request, she will rest in peace next to her father, Thomas Leath Sturdy, and stepmother, Mary Sturdy at the Pines Cemetery South. Gordon and Glen request any bequests honoring Verna be made to Providence Holy Family Hospital, 5633 N. Lidgerwood Spokane, WA 99208. RIPLINGER FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY 4305 4305 N.
