December 27, 1927 - February 25, 2024

The family of Rosemary Devine are very sad to announce her death on February 25, 2024, at the age of 96.

She is survived by her loving family: daughters, Susan (Robb), Ginny (Gary) and son John (Rena), grandchildren, Sarah, Rachelle, Ryley, Dana, Emily, Kate, Shane, Chloe, Jack, Will, Evan, Kyle and Keira as well as many great-grandchildren. She will also be sorely missed by her nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her loving husband Jim, and her sons, Matthew, Dan, Lorne, Jamie and Kevin. Rosemary was the last sibling of her family, having also been predeceased by her parents, her brothers, Patrick and Bob Convey and sister Rita Bullock.

Born in Winnipeg to Johanna and Robert Convey, she spent her early years in Crescentwood, attending St. Ignatius School and St. Mary’s Academy. In 1949, she married Jim Devine and they quickly began their family. Her life as a full - time mother of eight children was joyful, full of excitement, and not a small amount of chaos. She eventually went back to work for a well-deserved break and very much enjoyed being employed outside the home. She also bravely learned to drive when she was in her 50s. She and Jim loved their cottage at Grand Beach and spent many happy summers and winter weekends there. Rosemary was a friendly, outgoing person who took great pleasure in meeting people and made many lasting friendships throughout her life.

Rosemary’s strong Catholic faith helped her bravely endure much loss in her life and her failing health in the last few years. She will be deeply missed.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of her life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 4 at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St., Winnipeg.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation or Heart and Stroke Foundation.
