The death of Rose Carter occurred on September 23rd, 2010 in Leduc, Alberta. Having grown up in Queenstown, NB, Rose graduated from Modern Business College in 1960 and operated the NBTel switchboard in Hampstead, NB until she became a full-time Mom. Rose had a love for three things; family, cooking and traveling. Her home in St. Petersburg, Florida was her "happy place". Predeceased by her parents, Frank and Helen Preston and brother Terry, Rose will be dearly missed by her husband Ted, daughter Barbara (Mike) Asselin of Arnprior, Ont, son Barry (Heather) Short, sisters Connie (Ozzie) Foley of Glenwood, NB and Joyce (Claude) Lacey of Vancouver Island, BC, grandchildren Casey, Jamie, Quincy and Theo, several step-children, nieces and nephews.
