Book of Memories of
Rosie Gilbert was a phenomenal mother, granny, teacher, friend, runner, swimmer and general lovely person. She leaves a huge void in many people’s lives. Her sons Joseph, Dominic and Michael would love to know the memories of Rosie you have to share. Please feel free to comment as brief or as long as you wish, her immense love extended far and wide, which we are discovering more so since her passing. She was one who would remember every birthday, celebratory event and listened intently to every story you had, she cared and loved. As much as she battled MND in the last years of her life, she rebelled against her diagnosis in true determined style and remained as independent as possible until the very last moments. It is a comfort to all her family she fell into lasting sleep in her own home, in her own bed with the pictures of her three sons Joe, Dom and Mike, daughter-in-law’s Greta and Jess and adored grandson Leo close by. But prior to this, she led a social, active life and we would love to hear who Rosie was to you and any stories you have to tell of her.
Also, Rosie requested donations to the Motor Neurone Disease Association instead of flowers for her funeral, if you would like to contribute anything- please go the the below link.
