Martha Rose

It is with love and sadness that we say goodbye to our dear “Oma” Martha Kathe Adeline Rose (nee Segelken). Martha quietly passed away at 101 years, May 16, 2014 in Penticton. Predeceased by her husband, Fred Rose, of 69 years; they are once again reunited by love. In life, Martha was a good daughter, caring wife, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who was loved by all her family. She touched all of our lives and many others that shared in her kindness and affection. Martha was born in Hagen, Germany, May 15, 1913 and immigrated to Canada with her husband, Fred, and daughter, Edith, in 1952. She settled in Vancouver with a new life, raised a family and worked hard, showing a quiet strength that persevered in all her life. In 1998 Penticton became Martha’s new home and she was warmly received by her daughter, Edith and Rudi Krause; granddaughter, Tanya and Michael Murphy; grandson, Tom Krause and great-grandson, Brett Murphy. All of us will carry our memories of Martha in our lives forever and share these memories together. Rest in peace Oma, knowing your love for us has made us stronger. Arrangements in care of Everden Rust Funeral Services.
