Peacefully entered into rest on October 1, 2019 at the Third Crossing Manor, Gladstone at the age of 83 years.
Born May 21, 1936 at the family farm in Pine Creek, she and her twin brother were the youngest of ten children born to Alex and Agnes Livingstone.
Edna was educated at Elwood School and upon finishing she was employed as a nanny. She went on to work in food services at the University of Manitoba where she made many fond memories and lifelong friends.
In 1961 she married Harold Rosling and they began their married life in Austin. In 1962 they moved to the Rosling farm in Gladstone where they raised their family and have resided since.
Edna was a homemaker and mother first. She cared deeply about her family, friends and community. She often showed this through her love of cooking. There was always room and food at the table for anyone. Edna remembered everyone’s favourite pies, cakes, buns and sweets which she took great joy in serving.
Edna was active in the community through her church the Legion and annual Fundraising efforts. She also made it her mission to be connected with her neighbours. The happiest times were spent socializing with others and spending time with her grandchildren.
In 2018 Edna suffered from respiratory illness and spent a few months in the Neepawa Hospital until being moved to the Third Crossing Manor.
She will be missed by her husband Harold; daughter Donna (Paul); sons Jim (Ann) and Bruce (Cheryl); grandchildren Jeff (Jessi), Andrea (Vaughn), Justin (Jade), Lauren, Dean and Blake; great grandchildren Rylee and Madalyn; sister Grace; numerous nieces and nephews and Brady (Stephanie) who she shared a special bond with.
The family would like to express their appreciation and thanks to all of those who visited and supported Edna during this past year as well as to the caregivers and staff of Third Crossing Manor.
