Rosemary McARTHUR

Rosemary Rita McArthur, 56, of Stratford, passed away peacefully on August 5, 2023. She was born and raised in Stratford, the daughter of Leonard and June White. Rosemary was the beloved wife and best friend of Dave McArthur, and the loving mother of Kayleigh and Parker, Danielle and Andy, as well as Colin and Amanda. She adored her role as Grandma Rosie to her grandchildren, Dexter and Damien. Rosemary was a dedicated sister to Colleen, Tom, Bill and Cindy, as well as Tim and Rob.

Rosemary’s family was her top priority, and she poured her heart into their lives. She was known as the rock that many of us could lean on, creating cherished traditions and special moments for her loved ones. Her compassion extended beyond her family to include her pets and all the animals she encountered in her life. In her community, Rosemary made valuable contributions through her volunteer work and her career in healthcare. However, her true joy and contentment came from being in nature. Whether tending to her garden, enjoying Blue Jays baseball on the radio, sitting by a warm campfire, or indulging in her favorite novel or romantic comedy, Rosemary found peace and happiness.

Rosemary treasured her travels to Greece, Jamaica, various parts of Canada, and annual camping trips to the Pinery. Her contagious laughter never failed to brighten the day of those around her. With her optimistic outlook, she always found the silver lining and believed in the presence of miracles. Rosemary’s strength, courage, and unwavering kindness towards her family and friends will forever be cherished in their memories.
