WHITTAKER, Rosemary Diane In loving memory of Rosemary Diane Whittaker. Our cherished angel went to heaven from her home July 1, 2004 at the age of 53. Born August 12, 1950. She was the best friend and soul mate of the late Larry Phillips, and a wonderful mother to Geoffrey Phillips, Wife Kimberley. Precious daughter of Vera Whittaker (predeceased) and Gordon Whittaker wife Sandy of Skead, Ontario. Treasured sister of Jennifer Coursol, husband Dan, John Whittaker, friend Laurette and Susan Priest (predeceased 2003). Much loved aunt to Sheri and Ryan McNabb, Lorianne and Danny Coursol. Survived by stepsister Donna Farstad, husband Barry and James Lindgren, partner Chantall and children Parker, Marshall and James Jr. Loved niece of Edna Larhan, Jean Haunts, Jean Barton and several cousins. Lifelong best friend of Cathy McLeod and Family, and devoted "mom" to her canine companion Sally and to her cats Buddy and Bitsy. Rosemary was like the rose, beautiful and unique. She gave much joy to all around, always quick to make people laugh. Her one and only sense of humour, at times daring, never ceased to amaze us all. She was very intelligent, articulate person, with a fabulous vocabulary and flair for writing. She was also very kind, sensitive, and had a special way of making people around her feel very special. She possessed a gifted affinity for animals and cared for them with much love and kindness. Her passion was sailing with Larry with whom many good times were always remembered. Music and reading gave her much solace. We love you. We miss you...so very very much, now and forever. Resting at the JACKSON AND BARNARD FUNERAL HOME, 233 Larch St., Sudbury, Tuesday, July 6, 2004 2-5 pm and after 7 pm with a remembrance and celebration of Rosemary's life at 8:30 pm. Cremation at the Park Lawn Crematorium. In lieu of flowers donations to the SPCA or the Children's Wish Foundation would be appreciated.
