May 24, 1938 - July 14, 2023
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Rowena Stevens (nee Schneider) on July 14th, 2023 after a brief illness. Her husband Dennis and family by her side.
Mom was born in Runnymede Saskatchewan on May 24, 1938. Mom was always proud of growing up in Kamsack where our families had so many great early memories.
Mom was a strong and caring person and was always there for her family and friends both in good and in challenging times.
Mom always had a way to make light of every situation and the love of her family was paramount to who she was as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
Mom was predeceased by her parents George and Martha Schneider, Sister Irma, brothers Alvin, and Ken and brothers-in-law Floyd and Peter. She leaves to mourn, her loving husband, of 62 years, Dennis. Sisters Joyce and Maxine (Cecil), sons Gordon, and Craig (Charlene), daughter Cheryl Prince (Derek) and son Derek (Tara Jean) along with her lifelong friends Yvette Paulson and Flo Carrigan. So many cousins, nieces and nephews and brothers and sisters-in-law will be greatly missed.
Row and Dennis have ten grandchildren, Rosanna (Tyrel), Dan (Kassie), Trevor (Teresa), Brian, John (Natasha), Rachel (Skylar), Scott, Jillian, Violet and Ozzy and God daughter Anna, along with four great-grandchildren Henry, Francis, Remi and Lukas.
Mom started her career path nursing in Saskatchewan and later worked at Prince Rupert Regional Hospital in the Admitting department. She also worked downtown for the City of Prince Rupert where she made so many more friends and acquaintances.
Mom and Dad retired to Chase BC in 1994 and spent several winters in Arizona and Palm Springs making great friends wherever they happened to go.
Mom enjoyed many things in life. She loved attending Church, golfing, curling, playing cards, watching her beloved Blue Jays and Lions and of course socializing at the Legion with Dad. Mom was a member of the ladies auxiliary there for so many years.
Many special memories were made and Mom loved sharing the stories of her and Dad's adventures with all her family and friends.
We will miss Mom dearly and her memory will live on forever in our hearts, she had a full and rewarding life.
Funeral services in Chase, B.C.
