Rosemary Radelet (Ramsay)

September 16, 1933 - June 25, 2015


With a deep sense of love and loss, we announce the passing of Rosemary Radelet on June 25, 2015. Born the only child of Evelyn and Wilf Ramsay in Vancouver on September 16, 1933, she found her calling as a creative and dedicated teacher. In 1955 she married John Russel (Jack) Radelet and moved north to Prince Rupert and then to Terrace, where they raised their family. In 1996, after more than 30 years of teaching young children, Rosemary retired from E.T.Kenney school. Soon after Jack died in 2008, “Roses” moved to Vancouver Island to be closer to family. This First May Queen of Marpole, Speller Extraordinaire, and Print Shop Maven leaves behind friends from Vancouver, Terrace and the Cowichan Valley. Also left to mourn her passing: her children James Radelet (and Mona), Mike Radelet (and Alice) and Laurie Sheftel (and David); her grandchildren Natasha Mulhall, K.C. and Caleb Roome, and Benjamin and Jesse Sheftel; her great-grandchildren Zoe and A.J. Roome; her Mexican exchange students; and her sisters-in-law Signe and Anne and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. Heartfelt thanks go to the workers at Sunridge Assisted Living and to Dr.Glaude and the staff at Cowichan District Hospital for their gentle care. A celebration of Rosemary’s life will be held in Duncan on July 9 as well as in Vancouver in the Fall. In lieu of flowers, Mom asked that loving donations be made to Suwilaawks Community School, 3430 Sparks Street, Terrace BC  V8G 2V3.
