Mary Larose

LaROSE, Mary - (1927 - 2019) Mary Joyce Elizabeth Gallagher (Tyrwhitt) LaRose was born in Vancouver and grew up on the Island and Vancouver. She moved East as a teenager where she met J.P.R.(Bob) LaRose in Toronto. They married in 1949 and set off on his military career. It took them to postings across Canada and England, Germany and Egypt. Mary treated life as an adventure and met each challenge with gusto. She was always dressed to the nines and was a terrific cook and hostess. Her children Paul LaRose-Edwards (Marilyn) (Kingston), Michčle LaRose (Chris Laing) (Kingston), and Denyse LaRose (Moahengi Moengangongo) (Toronto) benefitted from her high spirits and generosity, and so did grandchildren Mike LaRose-Edwards, Andrew and Ian Monson, Michael, Nancy (Todd Lantz), Stephen, Paula and David (Lola) Laing and great-grandchildren Grace and Marie Laing, Gillian Kyle, Thomas Lantz, Max and Dexter Ruiz Laing, Isabelle de la Orden, Trevor and Emma Gayton-Laing, and Lily LaRose-Edwards-Cyr. Mary was predeceased by Bob, and sister Nancy Leach and brother Dick Tyrwhitt. She is survived by sisters Grace Mackay (BC), Bridgid Gray (Ont) and Sheelagh O’Donnell (BC). Mary was finally released from her Alzheimer’s prison on March 9, 2019. A private family ceremony will be held. Donations in Mary’s name to your local Council on Aging or Alzheimer’s Society would have been her preference.13329901
