In the dark valley of sorrow, God is there. In the lonely moments of the night, God's promise of comfort will come to embrace your aching heart. God who makes the sun rise and set, hears your every word. As you pour your hearts out to Him, may God's light bring you a sense of hope and peace, renewed every morning. Praying for you in your loss.

Albert and family.
Sorry to hear of Rowena’s promotion to glory. Take great confidence in knowing that today she is with her Lord whom she loved. There is no more pain and sickness.
She will always be remembered by us as a very strong and induring individual. She has fought the good fight and now she has won the race and has received her reward.
Always remember that God is our peace who has broken down every wall. So cast all your care on Hom for He cares for you.

Aunt Rowena where do I begin: Fond memories of childhood visits- knitted mittens and scarves as presents- lots of love from you and uncle Albert- Laid back and positive attitude
Then as I grew older: Driving lessons as you sat relaxed while knitting in the seat beside me-baby announcements in the paper and baby showers. What more can I say: These are the memories when I think of you. May you find your rest in your saviour. Although you will be missed by everyone who loves ❤️ you, including me, I will choose to ponder upon these happy memories you leave inside my heart. Praying for mom (Mildred) uncle Albert, and all of my cousins, aunts, and uncles as the days pass that Aunt Rowena's spirit will be forever alive in your hearts. Love you all. Gloria and Harvey Conway. Peterborough, Ontario
