Obituary for Rosa De Santis

January 23, 1965 - June 20, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the passing of our Rosa. Rosa is survived by her daughter Alicia, parents Lina & Domenico, brother Lino, sister Rita, niece Selena, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Rosa lived her life full of zest and anyone that had the honour of knowing her will be able to share a story, a laugh or a special moment. Everyone loved her and she loved you back.

Rosa’s big heart and compassionate nature shone through her warm infectious smile. She was generous beyond measure and was famous for bringing levity to any situation.

Aside from many lifelong friends, and close family members, Rosa will be dearly missed by her daughter, Alicia whom she called her rock, and vice versa, and was by her side to the very end.

She is finally at rest and reunited with her sister, grandparents, & special family members.

The family wishes to extend their thanks to the compassionate medical teams at St Paul’s palliative care & Cottage Hospice.
