ROSE, Charmaine Natalie May - It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of Charmaine on Thursday, November 26, 2020 at age 53.
She is survived by her husband Kevin, and sons Marcus, Malcolm, and Martin.
Charmaine was a dedicated mother first and foremost.
She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. As well, her parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews meant the world to her.
Charmaine was so many things - she was loving, optimistic, charismatic, selfless, outgoing, artistic, unique, funny, beautiful, strong and again so very loving. Those are just a few of her many amazing qualities. Charmaine was a selfless woman, constantly putting others before herself. She consistently looked for ways to help others and her family and carried this attitude through to her last days.
Charmaine homeschooled her three sons who all received early admission into post-secondary institutions. She would also tutor children and teach fine art classes. A lifelong learner herself, Charmaine completed her undergraduate degree at Ryerson University, where she studied Architecture.
Charmaine was an extraordinary human being. Her life was cut short and there’s a now a huge void in our lives. We hope to continue to exemplify her kindness and caring spirit by asking for donations to Colorectal Cancer Canada colorectalcancercanada.com in lieu of flowers.
