La ROSA, Shirley (nee KEMP) - With love in our hearts and tears in our eyes we announce the sudden passing of Shirley La Rosa (Kemp) in Florida on March 25, 2014 at the age of 62. Shirley was a cherished and loving mother and will be deeply missed by her children Marcie and Leslie (Dino), devoted grandmother to Luca who adored his Grammy and their special bond, loving sister to Bill (Linda) Kemp and John (Maralyne) Kemp. Beloved daughter of Maud and Bruce Kemp. She will be missed by her many friends and extended family. Rooted by her faith, she was as an educator, writer, artist, card shark and avid golfer. Although our lives will never be the same, we're comforted in the thought that she'll be reunited with those that have gone before her and hope she will forever smile upon us. A Celebration of Life will be held at McDougall & Brown Funeral Home, 2900 Kingston Rd., east of St. Clair Ave. E., on Monday, April 7th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Service on Tuesday, April 8th at 11 a.m. with reception to follow at the funeral home.
