She was a proud member of the Ladies Hospital Auxiliary and a member of the United Baptist Church. Left with fond and loving memories are her children; Allan Leopold (Cathy) of the Forties; daughters Kathy Leopold of Halifax, Claudette Harvey (Dennis) of Leminster, Charlotte Rowe (Vernon) of Mahone Bay and Tracey Macumber (Winston) of Poplar Grove; grandchildren Bradley, Michelle, Brittany, Nicholas, Jesse, Craig, Chad, Joel, Lori, Chelsey, Logan and Taylor; nine great grandchildren and step grandsons Ryan and Randy.

Rosalie was predeceased by her siblings; Dean (Joyce, Praxie), Bruce (Yvonne), Delphne (Harvey) Leopold, and Lynn (George) Walker, as well as her brother-in-law Murray Leopold. Along with her husband of 64 years she was also predeceased by her son Douglas Harley and grandchild baby Maxwell. Arrangements have been entrusted to Serenity Lindsay Funeral Homes, New Ross Chapel (902-689-2961).
