Noemia Rosa

October 9, 1925 - April 28, 2011


Noémia Santana Estevão Rosa, born on October 9th, 1925 in Quarteira, Algarve,Portugal, received her angel wings on April 28th, 2011 in Osoyoos. She left this world peacefully.
She was predeceased by her dear parents António João Estevão and Maria da Conceiҫão Santana Estevão, her brother António João Santana Estevão and nephew Johnny Rosa Estevão.
Noémia is missed by Manuel Marceliano Gonҫalves Rosa, her beloved husband of nearly 70 years ( May 17/43), her dearest sister Elizabeth Santana Estevão Narciso (Joe) her treasured children Maria and Rolf Dammel, Clara Rosa, Sandra and Richard Law and Richard and Elva Rosa her grandchildren Marnie Mylene, Shawna, Justin, Jason, Jared, Jaquelen, Carol Ann and Robbie and great grandchildren Sofia, Maya, Noah, Isabella, Angelina, Diego, Rori, Carter, Blake, Josh and Juliana and many relatives in Portugal.
Noémia, Manuel and their children were one of the first Portuguese families to make their home in Oliver. They arrived in 1957 and bought an orchard. Noémia ran their fruit stand in Okanagan Falls.
They retired to Portugal to spend time with their aging parents, built a beautiful home and Noémia created a beautiful garden. The children and grandchildren enjoyed many visits with them.
In the last few years Noémia has lived in Osoyoos where she has enjoyed her large family. A memorable family reunion and party in her honour was held for her 85th birthday. During her final days she enjoyed her family, participated in Mass and delighted in the cherry blossoms outside her window.
Noémia generous of heart, constant of faith will live on in her descendents and in our memories.
A memorial Mass will be held at 11 am, Thurs. May 5th, 2011 at Christ the King Catholic Church in Oliver, BC.
