Rosemary (Cameron) Parker

1947-2020

Rosemary (Cameron) Parker

Parker, Rosemary (nee Cameron) passed away peacefully Thursday, July 23, 2020 at St. Joseph's Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario after a short battle with cancer.

Rosemary born April 5, 1947, the daughter of the late Francis and Esther (nee MacDonald) Cameron of Salt Springs, Antigonigh Co, Nova Scotia where she was born and raised until moving to Ontario in the late 60's.

Rosemary is survived by her daughter Kate Parker; son-in-law, Steve Ragany; and her two partners in crime - her grandchildren, Makenna and Jack Ragany. She is also survived by her brothers Gerald Cameron, Langley, B.C.; and Jerome "Romie" Cameron, (Salt Springs, Antigonish Co); Doug (Jean) Cameron; and sister Mari Cameron Smith,  Antigonish, N.S.

Rosemary was predeceased by her beloved son, David "Chas" Taylor (Dec. 7, 1967-Sept. 15, 1972); brother Joe Cameron; and sisters, Donna Feeney and Debbie Landry; as well as sisters-in-law, Valerie Cameron and Lorraine Cameron; and brother in-law, Bruce Smith.

Rosemary (or Rosie as she was affectionately known to her close family) will be dearly missed by her many nieces and nephews, as well as many cousins, most of whom still reside in Antigonigh or surrounding areas, as well as the many friends she has made along the way.

Many thanks to the doctors and nurses of both Jurivinski Hospital and St. Joseph's hospital for the exceptional care she received these last few months - especially Dr. Anne Boyle of St. Joseph's Hospital Palliative Care, for the excellent care she gave Rosemary in her final weeks and the compassion she showed her daughter during this difficult time.

As per Rosemary's wishes, cremation will take place and she will be interred with her beloved "Chas" at St. Patrick's Cemetery in Brampton, Ontario at a later date.
