September 25, 1927 - May 9, 2018
Rosemarie Cecilia Wyant, 90 passed away peacefully at 4:50 p.m. May 9, 2018 at Alderwood Assisted Living.
Rose was born September 25, 1927 in Santa Barbara, California to John and Christina Therres. She had four siblings:. Anna Fox, Richard Therres, Jannette Turner, and Margie Bernard.
Rose and Stuart met and got married June 18, 1945 in Medford, Oregon when she was just 18. They raised their five children in Ashland, and Bandon, Ore. Rose was a cook, a nursing assistant, and for many years she and Stuart owned a janitorial business.
She and Stuart enjoyed bowling, beachcombing, fishing, and gardening together. Rose was very creative and also enjoyed cooking, canning, and sewing for many years.
Rose leaves behind her beloved cat, Sir William. She is survived by four of her five children, Janet Johnson, Kathleen Warren, Daniel Wyant, and Bryan Wyant; as well as their unofficially adopted children, Bobby and Debbie Storm. She has numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and even two great-great-granddaughters.
Her husband of more than 70 years, Stuart Connor Wyant, preceded her in death in 2016. Her daughter, Judith Schlem, preceded her in death in 2000.
The love and support provided by Alderwood Assisted Living was immeasurable, and as a family we are so grateful for the care all the staff provided to Rosemarie for the last four years. Asante Hospice Health Systems came multiple times each week for the last two months to give massages, support, counseling, and medical care. Rose was pampered and blessed by the compassion they provided.
A private memorial service will be held at Alderwood Assisted Living for the staff and residents. Rose and Stuart’s ashes will be joined together and cast off of Face Rock in Bandon, Ore. later this summer.
