Rosemarie Lemaire was born on September 12, 1935, at St. Peter’s Hospital, Melville, Saskatchewan. She was the youngest daughter of Victor and Rose (Rusnak) Lemaire. She departed this life on Thursday, June 3, 2021, at the age of 85 years at St. Peter’s Hospital in Melville, Saskatchewan.

Rosemarie was predeceased by her parents, Rose and Victor Lemaire; her brother, Lloyd; her sister, Blanche Nagy; brothers-in-law Leon Crow and Joe Nagy; nephews Delbert Crow, Tim Nagy and Tom Reid; numerous aunts and uncles, and her favourite family dog, Fergie. She leaves behind to cherish her memory: sister Betty Crow; son Herb (Shirley) Lemaire; grandson Travis Lemaire; granddaughter Lindsey Lemaire and her fiancé, Harley Hahn; godchild Amy Bugg; her four-legged friends, Odis and Gibson; and a number of nieces, nephews and friends.

Upon graduating from St. Henry’s High School in Melville, Rosemarie studied to become a registered nurse. She took her training at the Grey Nun’s Hospital in Regina. She nursed at St. Peter’s Hospital in Melville for many years. In 1983 Rosemarie left St. Peter’s Hospital and went to the Colonsay potash mine until her retirement in January 2000. She was the only nurse on site with approximately 500 men, which she enjoyed very much. She would always say “five hundred men were easier to work with than one woman”. Rosemarie was always a great healthcare provider and a very compassionate and loving person; she was our family physician.

Faith and family were most important to Rosemarie, especially her grandchildren. She was always involved with Travis and Lindsey growing up. She would babysit, take them to school, help with homework and loved baking chocolate chip cookies for them. As they got older, Rosemarie enjoyed being around them. She enjoyed going for a ride in Travis’ sports car, asking him about his day at work, which usually ended in a good laugh. When Lindsey took her dog to visit her, she always made sure her favourite cucumbers were in the fridge for a treat. Lindsey spent a lot of time with Grandma, especially this last year, partially due to Covid-19. Lindsey would go to get Grandma’s groceries and help her with other things. She took her coffee and had visits in the morning before going to work. Herb was always there for his mom, making sure the coffee pot was on Saturday and Sunday mornings. He made sure to get her the Melville Advance, as well as get her to her doctor’s appointments. Rosemarie always enjoyed a good homemade meal that Shirley had prepared. Some of her favourites included, but were not limited to, cheese biscuits, beer-battered fish, eggs in any fashion (but without the yolk) and toast with peanut butter and Smucker’s strawberry jam.

Rosemarie’s daily routine was getting the mail and going over to Vic and Rose’s house (now Herb and Shirley’s house) at 7:00 a.m. sharp. She would sit and do the jumble puzzles in the Leader Post; she would say “got to keep the mind sharp”. Rosemarie always liked to help out, doing dishes, laundry, dusting and more. She loved to take Fergie for a walk or ride in her car and enjoyed Fergie’s company very much.

Apart from being a grandma, Rosemarie enjoyed travelling in earlier years with her son, Herb, and her parents. She was an avid reader, and her favourite author was Nicholas Sparks. She enjoyed knitting and listening to Johnny Reid or Rita MacNeil. She always enjoyed Christmas with the Crow and Bisch families and enjoyed going to the Nagy farm for Boxing Day and her sister Blanche’s birthday in August.

On Wednesday, June 2, 2021, we spent our last bright day with her. She was cracking jokes and told Lindsey she needed her eyebrows done and toenails clipped and needed a top to match that skirt for Lindsey’s wedding on July 3. She needed to brush her teeth and take her medication; she said “I have a routine, you know”. On June 3 at 10:00 p.m., we prayed with Father Andrew and said our final goodbyes.
