Obituary for Rose Marie Jennings-Westcott

Rose Marie Jennings-Westcott

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts the family of Rose (Rosie) Marie Jennings-Westcott announce her passing on Sunday, January 8th, 2023, at the Victoria General Hospital in Halifax. Born in Liverpool, NS, on May 27, 1958 to Ivan and Elsie Langille, Head of St. Margaret's Bay, NS.

She is survived by her loving son Joel Westcott, mother Elsie Langille, three sisters Millie Mason, NB; Barbara (Tom) Hood, Truro, NS; Wanda Langille, Beaverbank, NS; and many cousins, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by father Ivan H. Langille, and sister Sherry L. Belyea.

The family would like to thank the QEII Health Services Center and the Victoria General Hospital for their compassionate care and assistance during Rosie's short stay. In addition, a very special thank you and gratitude are extended to very special friends: Linda M. Palmer, her Best Friend and constant companion (where you saw one, you saw the other); close family friends of some 20 years, Ashley Cropper, Melanie Riley, and Steve and Diane Coburn. Particularly, Ashley Cropper who supported Rosie and Joel prior to her passing and making her transition peaceful and very loving, staying by their side until the end.

Rosie was a gentle, kind, compassionate and caring soul with a giving nature and a heart as big as the ocean. She was a trusted friend who had a wonderful sense of humor, a unique innocent whit, and a gentle calming demeanor. She was always there to lend a hand, and help in any way she could. Her common expressions and phrases will forever linger in our hearts: ‘I love you sweetheart’ (expressed with such meaning); ‘Hi Hon, how’er you doin?'; and the famous ‘I'm alright Ronnie, how’re you?’. She never complained, and was very content with the simpler things in life. Her keen interest in reading mystery novels allowed her imagination to solve crimes, unwrap mysteries, and travel to foreign places. The sky was the limit. Her biggest treasures were her relationships with her son (her big teddy bear), family, friends and the many canine fur babies over the years, most recently Diva.

Rosie will be desperately missed and fondly remembered by all those who she's left behind. She was one of a kind, a loving and devoted mother, daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, and a great friend. Our Hearts are so deeply broken by this unexpected and very sad loss.

No visitation or funeral by request. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the Cancer Society.
