Roslynne GOODWIN


Roslynne Margaret (nee: Hannah)

January 2, 1915 – September 2, 2008

A very special person, wife, mother, and friend departed this earth suddenly and unexpectedly early Tuesday. Born in a sod shack in Kyle, Sask., she grew up and was married in Moose Jaw. Roslynne had immense strength of character, was able to meet life’s challenges and rose above adversity. She was a caregiver to many and was loyal to whom and what she believed in. Her dedication to all her family, friends, volunteer organizations, the Eastern Star and her fund raising endeavors was extraordinary. She was the family historian with a remarkable memory. This lady has left an incredible void in the lives of those closest to her.

She was predeceased by her husband Lieut. Col. Harold E. Goodwin, R.C.E.M.E. Reserve, parents John and Harriet Hannah (Lancaster), brothers: Alex, Dick, Jim, and sister Betty. She leaves to mourn, children: Gerald (Betty), Kenneth (Cathy), grandchildren: Stuart, Russell (Sarah), Matthew (Anne Marie), and Tracey, great-grandchildren: Rachel and Nicholas, her sister Mary Mills in ON, sister-in-law Hazel Hannah in Sask., along with many nieces and nephews and close friends.

She moved to Comox to be closer to family in April and was enjoying all the amenities, activities and new friends she was making in ‘the Berwick’. Her remains will be cremated and will be interred with those of her beloved at a later date.

In memory, donations may be made to the Maple Leaf Chapter Eastern Star, cancer dressings, c/o B. Moncrief, #901-3083 Kent Ave. NE, Vancouver, B.C. V5S 4R2 or to the Salvation Army.
