Maria (Rosa) Modef

February 17, 1961 – November 27, 2016

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of our beloved Rosa.

Rosa’s strength and spirit through her short but courageous battle with cancer gave strength to the family and friends who stood by her, prayed for her and loved her.

Rosa’s engaging love of life, food, dance and laughter inspired. Her always special and treasured relationship with her beloved brother John (Danielle), and sister Bonnie, only strengthened in the weeks past. She had a never ending love for her best friend Diana and her precious Goddaughter Hannah who also never left her side. Her friends were her family and if you were in that circle, you were never alone.

Per Rosa’s wishes and in lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Foundation and Rosa’s tribute page would be appreciated. http://donate.bccancerfoundation.com/goto/RosaModef.

A celebration of life is being planned for January 2017.
