Rose (Roselia Dedio) Watt (August 11, 1930 – September 20, 2023)

Rose (Roselia Dedio) Watt passed away on September 20, 2023 in Edmonton, AB.

Born on August 11, 1930 to Peter and Stella at the homestead near Webster, AB, Rose grew up with siblings Agnes, Walter, Ed, Tony and Susan.

She is survived by her daughters Yvonne (Bill) Beacom of Calgary and Karen (Ken) Hudson of Prince George; seven grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; her sister Susan (Paul) Rouleau and numerous nieces and nephews.

Rose was predeceased by her husband, Harry James Watt, in 1988; their daughter, Valerie Ann, in 2015; their son, Barry James, in 2022; brothers Tony, Ed and Walter and sister Agnes.

Rose’s greatest joys were her family, gardening – vegetables and flowers and even shoveling snow. She belonged to a little northern Alberta community and was quick to “adopt” more grandchildren who would call out greetings to “Grandma Rosie”. She would often have someone’s dog accompany on her daily walks.

Rose will be laid to rest beside her husband in the M.D. of Spirit River Community Cemetery in a private family graveside service.
