In 1977, grandchildren began arriving; they followed the grandchildren to the Hazelton area. They built a house and developed gardens and enjoyed outdoor activities with their family. Bill passed away in 1997; Rose continued living in her home, gardening, cooking, enjoying the grand and great grandchildren, her dogs and the Suskwa neighborhood. She will be sadly missed by friends in Battleground, 100 Mile House, Smithers and Hazelton areas.
