We announce the peaceful passing of our matriarch Rose Cassar. Rose passed away with her loving family at her side on May 31, 2023, in her 88th year. Born to Mary & Carmelo Parascandalo, in Malta, on November 23, 1935.

In 1964 she immigrated to Canada and was reunited with her husband, she courageously made the trip here with her 5 young children in tow, with another child soon to join and with the hope of providing a better life for them. Rose, not unlike many Maltese women of her generation, was an exceptional hostess, always cooking & keeping an impeccable home. But she was so much more: she was personable, witty & generous, all the while she was stern and stubborn when she needed to be. She lovingly controlled her home & would do anything for her family & asked for nothing in return but honesty, kindness & hard work.

She is predeceased by her beloved husband Sam of 65 years. Loving mother of late Tony, late Miriam (John), Michael (Sandy), late Francis, Joseph (Steve), late Louise (Leroy) & Ray (Lucy). Cherished grandmother of Jason (Linda), Courtney (Terry), Erica (Luca), Michelle (Adrian), Nicholas (Jessica), Samantha (Romeo), Samantha (Quewin) & Laura (Arthur).Proud great grandmother of Emma, Olivia, Louis, Leo, Nathaniel, Evan, Emilia, Celine, Cali Rose, Sebastian, Madeleine, Chloe, and Christian. She will be lovingly remembered by her siblings, nieces & nephews both in Canada & Malta.

A pillar of strength, the heartbeat of the Cassar family, and the most incredible woman, we will miss you until we meet again.
