HERRELL, Rosemarie   -  October 28, 1932 - August 21, 2022

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Rosemarie Herrell at the age of 89 on August 21st, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.

Predeceased by her husband, Edgar Herrell, sisters Alice, Madeleine, and brother Joey.

The heart of our family, she was the loving mother of Jill Coffey (Rick), Owen Herrell (Tina), Marie Herrell, and Anita Speers (John).

Deeply missed by grandchildren Lindsay (Shawn), Josh (Shannon), Leah (Tim), Eric (Dani), Luke (Chelsea), and Joel. Greatly missed by her 9 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and many more family and friends.

Born in Toronto, she embraced and was proud of her diverse, multicultural community.

In 1961 Rosemarie and Edgar purchased a small farm in Uxbridge and raised their family. The farm was truly a special place to her, to have animals, especially a horse, was a dream of hers since childhood. 

Rosemarie's passion for environmental and social justice issues were dear to her heart, evident in her lifelong volunteering and support she gave to so many worthy causes. She was dedicated to the fight to care for the earth and its people.

The family would like to thank Dr. Merrilee Brown who cared for mom with tremendous devotion and compassion. Doug Brown and his team at Pharmacy Associates of Port Perry for their heartfelt support.

The doctors, nurses and staff at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital for their exceptional care and understanding.

Our Angel of a nurse, Mary, who gently and professionally supported Mom and our family, in our home for Mom’s last days. Also, a special thank you to the kind and caring staff at Douglas Crossing.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Goodwood Community Centre, 268 Durham Regional Highway 47, Goodwood, Ontario on Sunday, October 30, 2022 at 1:00 pm.  At 2:00 pm we will have a program sharing memories, music and laughter, just as she would have enjoyed. Reception to follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity close to your hear.
