Rose later moved to Terrace and married John (Dan) Verigin on December 20, 1986 in Terrace, B.C., adding another three step children and two more grandchildren to the family. Together they were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses on July 8, 1989  and remained faithful to the end. Rose lived her life according to the teachings of the bible.

The family would like to thank everyone for your prayers, love and support we received at this difficult time.
