In Loving Memory (1952-2023) ~
Rozalia (Rosie) passed away peacefully at the Penticton Regional Hospital after battling numerous health issues over the past 4 years.
Rozalia is survived by her husband of 8 years and her stepdaughter Rita Simon.
Rozalia was born in Hungary (nee Osztos) and emigrated to Canada in 1989. When she left Hungary Rozalia was the Executive Assistant to the Attorney General of Hungary.
In her teen years, she earned her Glider Licence and went on to a 10 year career in the Hungarian Air Force becoming a Sargent.
Before meeting her husband Rozalia worked hard operating her own Spa in North Vancouver while holding down a full-time job as a laboratory assistant. She prided herself on being independent and resourceful.
Rozalia and her husband Richard moved to Penticton in 2015 and resided in Red Wing Resort.
She enthusiastically took up painting and travelling until illness slowed her down.
Deepest gratitude to her Doctors Forzley, Dueck, Bursey, Christine Osland and the team of Nurses at the 6th floor in the PRH that provided extraordinary care and compassion.
A Celebration of Life will be announced sometime in the future.
