Rosella Clancy

CLANCY, Rosella - Rosella passed away peacefully, in hospital, Ottawa on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at the age of 88. Beloved wife of the late Maurice Clancy. Cherished mother of Lloyd (Gina) Clancy of Brandon, MB and Lyle (Sandra Seguin) Clancy of Smiths Falls, ON. Rosella was the much loved grandmother of Betina (Corey) Roberts, Brook (Trisha) Clancy, Michelle, Gabe & Molly and the great-grandmother of Bryce, Robin, Connery, Hennesey, Kinsey, Fred, Natalie and Mackenzie. Rosella was born and raised in Stirling, ON and has extensive family roots in the area. She taught at a number of one and two-room schools in and around her community. She was a member of the Stirling Agricultural Society / Farmtown Park, the United Church Women (UCW), the United Empire Loyalist Society, the Women’s Institute of Stirling/River Valley and other fraternal organizations. Rosella was artistic and was especially known for her painting and penmanship. With a love of music, Rosella’s talents included playing the piano and the organ; talents she shared with her community church. She also was a dedicated Sunday School teacher for many years. Written accomplishments include co-authoring The Heritage Years: A History of Stirling and District for the communities’ 125th anniversary. Rosella moved to Smiths Falls in 2016 to Van Horne Manor and quickly renewed old friendships and made many new ones. She participated in Van Horne’s many social activities and even brought her own family in to share their talents – especially enjoying Irish dance and musical performances by her great-grandchildren. In her last month before passing, she resided at Broadview Nursing Centre; our family is very thankful for the care and compassion given to her and our family. A Celebration of Rosella’s life will take place in Stirling, Ontario in the spring; the location, date and times will be updated as arrangements are finalized. Funeral arrangements entrusted to BLAIR & SON FUNERAL DIRECTORS, SMITHS FALLS .
