Rose Evelyn Lehmann
It is with sad regrets that we inform you of the passing of Rose Evelyn Lehmann nee Tresierra, on Sept. 11, 2008 in Winnipeg, Manitoba due to a massive heart attack.
Rose was born in Clinton, BC, on
April 8, 1922 to her proud parents Charlie
and Harriet Tresierra. Rose had 13 brothers and sisters.
Rose met Bert Lehmann and was married at Anahim Lake, BC, on May 30, 1942. They had 5 children: Cecil; Faye (Lloyd Bercier); Ervin (Corriene); Chester and Wayne.
Rose was a person who loved to travel and reminisce about old times and when the subject came up she would talk lovingly and proudly about her five children and their off spring. She thought nothing of climbing in to her son’s 18 wheeler and traveling across the country to Alberta and BC to visit her family and friends.
Rose moved several times during her lifetime. She lived in Anahim Lake and Williams Lake area from 1926 to 1949. Then they moved to Fork River, Manitoba and lived there from 1949 – 1951; Rorkton 1951 – 1960; Ericksdale 1960 – 1961; Derban 1961 – 1963; San Clare (which is located 26 miles north of Roblin, Manitoba) 1963 – 1973; Winnipeg 1973 – 1980; and then in Ile Des Chenes from 1980 until her untimely death. Wayne, her youngest son stayed at home with his mother keeping a promise to his father, Bert, to look after his mom, and was living with her still at the time of her passing.
She is proceeded by her parents, husband Bert (June 21, 1973), as well as brothers John, Leonard, Marvin, Sonny, Walter and sisters Irene McGregor, Ethel Walker, Reta Ashley and Jaunita Cullen. She is survived by two brothers Wayne (Carole), Alvin, and two sisters Pearl Roberts and Winona Gollogly, as well as her 5 children, 14 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren, 3 great great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
Rose was buried in Roblin, Manitoba beside her husband Bert on September 18, 2008.
