DeROSE, Marlene (nee Watt)
1950 - 2021
With profound sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of Marlene, at her home with family on March 24, 2021 after a courageous journey with pancreatic cancer and Parkinson’s disease. A true fighter, she tackled her treatments with relentless determination and optimism. Survived by devoted husband Rudy, loving daughter Carlissa (Morgan), proud Nannie of Madison, Dylan and Ella her “greatest gifts”. Sisters Brenda (Frank) Hogg and Carol Oxner. Sister-in-law to Bernie DeRose, Ruth Watt and Lynne Crowell, Margaret Cosentini and sadly leaves behind several nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends. Raised in Barrington Passage, N.S., she was the youngest daughter of the late George Baxter and Sarah Frances Watt (Smith). Predeceased by sisters Elaine (Carmen) Moore, Margery Radigan and Jean (John) Bell, brothers Bruce and Lee (Margaret) Watt and brother-in-law Don Oxner. Marlene met and married the love of her life and soul mate Rudy in Halifax, sharing over 52 wonderful years together. Their genuine love and devotion for each other was admired by everyone who knew them. A dedicated and supportive mother and an amazing Nannie, who gave the best hugs, loved without condition and was always there for her family. The family is heartbroken and grieving their loss, but we know Marlene will be in our hearts and minds forever. Marlene used to say “education is about learning how to make a life, not just about learning how to make a living”. She graduated from Dalhousie University (BPE/Sc) and Brock University (MEd). Her accomplishments in her 35 years in education were extensive and widely respected; an exemplary and dedicated teacher, principal, Chair of the Ontario’s Principal’s Association, System Administrator at DSBN and instructor in the Faculty of Education at Brock University. She was particularly invested in encouraging and advocating for children of all abilities to reach their full potential. A leader, role model and contributor to her community, Marlene served as Chair of the Thorold Community Activities Group, Chair of Contact Niagara and Education Consultant for FACS. One of her most satisfying accomplishments was her involvement as a Chair and founder of the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre Niagara. Marlene was also the recipient of the Paul Harris Fellow recognition, the Top 60 Over 60 and the YWCA Women of Distinction awards. Rooms lit up when she entered. Marlene’s appreciation for fine wine, skiing, golf, tennis, good books, bridge and passion for travel was surpassed only by her love for spending time with family and friends, especially her grandchildren creating wonderful memories. Marlene’s core was one of kindness, love and acceptance; her spirituality allowed her to live with hope and graced those who knew her. Whatever Marlene undertook in life was approached with determination and positivity. Marlene will be remembered and cherished forever as a strong, thoughtful and generous woman who valued relationships deeply and helped those in need. The family extends heartfelt thanks to her doctors, nurses and many friends for all of their incredible support. Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life to honour Marlene will be held in the coming months. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Steve Ludzik Centre for Parkinson's Rehab and the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre Niagara and may be made through the HAINE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 26 Ormond Street South, Thorold. Our shining angel will be greatly missed. The world is a much better place because she was in it.
In every heart she touched, in every life she changed, in every thought she inspired,
her love lives on. Keep her in your heart and memories and share her love with those around you.

I'm Free
Don't grieve for me for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call:
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found my place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too shall miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow:
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savoured much;
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my life seemed all too brief:
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.

Letter to Our Nanna
Our Nanna had a gift for making everyone who walked into her house feel at home.
Whether she'd known you your whole life or just met you five minutes ago, she treated everyone the same - with love, kindness and generosity.
Stepping into our Nanna's house always meant three things: That you would enjoy a delicious meal, you'd be treated to a story about "the good ol' days", and you'd leave at least 25 cents richer. Our Nanna always kept a jar of coins in her cupboard and each time we'd leave, she'd reach into her jar and give us a few coins As kids, this was something we always looked forward to.
As we (her grandchildren) got older, Nanna's generosity continued with her great-grandchildren. On our final visit with Nanna a few days before she passed, despite her pain and weakened condition, she insisted we get her wallet so she could give her great-granddaughters twenty dollars each. Her giving spirit was unwavering and she never stopped thinking of others.
Our Nanna was an incredible cook and her culinary skill was something she was very proud of. Nothing lit up her face more than when you complimented her cooking. So many of our best memories are tied to our Nanna’s cooking - the way she’d always make us the perfect poached eggs for breakfast, the crispiest fried potatoes and the best meatballs and tomato sauce. Sitting around our Nanna’s kitchen table, with her food on the table and family all around is an experience that will never be the same without her.
Our Nanna came to Canada, a foreign country she’d never seen before, when she was a young woman. She didn’t know the language and she’d never met my Nonno in person (they’d only corresponded through letters), but she soon married him and started a family. It’s difficult to think of the struggles our Nanna may have gone through - the loneliness of being separated from her family, the longing for her home country, and the discrimination she would have faced as an Italian immigrant. It’s hard to imagine the sacrifices she made to start a new life in Canada, but she (and my Nonno) are the reason we are all here today, in this beautiful country.
Our Nanna’s life was a life truly lived - all 90 years of it. It wasn’t all easy - I know there are parts of her life she never wanted to share with us because the memories were too difficult, but there were also so many beautiful moments too. Our Nanna helped raise seven grandchildren. Our Nanna lived to see and enjoy the company of eight great-grandchildren. Even as her memory failed her, she did her best to remember everyone’s names and nothing made her happier than sitting outside watching her great-grandchildren play in the yard.
We are all going to miss our Nanna so much. We’re going to miss her on our birthdays because she’d never forget to call us. We’re going to miss her at Christmas because she always baked the most special Christmas cookies. We’re going to miss her in the summer, sitting out on her porch, waiting for us to arrive for a visit. We’re going to miss the way she would cut us up fresh apples after dinner, always peeled. We’re going to miss her voice and her hugs and her hands - the hands that cooked thousands of meals and held grandbabies and great-grandbabies and worked so hard to make us all feel so loved.
Written by Jenna Pettinato-Mizera on behalf of Norina's grandchildren.

Robert was born in Chatham, ON, but destiny would call him to St. Catharines where he married his sweetheart Jean (Jesik). Dad’s independent nature and ability to fix anything that needed repair led him to start his own business - Robert Hind Appliance Repair & Installation, as well as a contractor with Sears for many years. Even after retirement, Dad could not sit still, a passion for model railroading kept him quite busy and every year he looked forward to his part time job with Presto Heaters at Costco. He loved to get out and talk with people. Always one to share a laugh, a little drink and a whole lot of Johnny Cash. Dad's easy-going demeanor always made for a good time. Dear husband, dad and poppy, to say you’ll be missed is an understatement, our memories are fond and always close to our hearts, and it is those memories that will carry us through the days ahead. Always loved and never forgotten, until we meet again. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, cremation has taken place and a celebration of life is planned for this coming summer.
