Obituary for Mrs. Margaret “Peggi” Rose
Margaret Mary Rose (ne Bowman), aged 90, passed away on May 28, 2016. She was born on November 8, 1925 in Shawinigan Falls, Quebec, Canada. “Peggi” was a woman of strong faith; a loving wife, mother and grandmother; an animal lover; incredibly creative; her family’s greatest cheerleader, and endlessly gracious to everyone she met.
Mrs. Rose graduated from Shawinigan Falls High School in 1943. She attended McGill University in Montreal, and then transferred to Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada, where she graduated in 1947 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and applied arts. She met and married William Sansom, of Montreal, in Shawinigan Falls, where he was working following his World War II service and graduation from McGill University. She taught elementary school for several years in northern Canada. In the following years, the DuPont de Nemours Company transferred them twice between Canada and the United States. Her two children were born during their transfers to Delaware. In 1966 they moved to Hendersonville, TN where Peggi resided for the most of the rest of her life.
Following the death of her fist husband from cancer, she met and married Shan Rose, whose first wife also died of cancer. They ran Shan’s business, G.R. Distributing, for several years, and then worked in the sales at Mount Olivet Cemetery and Hermitage Memorial Gardens. Mrs. Rose later worked at Factory Jewelers, Jared’s and Dillards.
Mrs. Rose loved her family, and supported all their endeavors. From acting as driver to her son’s weekend motocross races and her daughters late night horse shows, to cheering on her grandchildren in soccer, baseball and basketball games, she always owned dogs r cats, and had an affinity for any animal in need. She was the original ‘whisperer’; all animals- wild or tame- responded to her. Mrs. Rose was also incredibly creative. Among her talents were jewelry design and fabrication, wood-carving, metal and leather working, painting, knitting, crocheting, and sewing. She was also an avid gardener and bird-watcher-interests she shared with her own mother.
