Rose Owen

Rose has gone to meet her beloved husband Jack. She was born to parents Ivy and Frederick Parker on August 23, 1928 in Bagshot, England where she had many happy memories. When war was declared, Rose’s father went to serve his country and his young family was moved to the countryside. Rose lost her father to war but while working in an aircraft factory found her future husband Jack Owen, a young Canadian soldier. They were married and Rose followed Jack to her new home and country as a Canadian War Bride. Together they raised four children until Jack passed away in 1980. Rose continued to live in Fernie until her passing.
