(nee JONES)

January 30, 1937 –

August 15, 2014

Rose, always strong in her faith, gracefully and peacefully slipped away to join God’s family, at Stanford Residence in Parksville, BC, at the age of 77. Devoted wife to her one true love, the late Gordy Buller.

She was the dedicated and kind mother of Jennifer Buller and Marlene Buller-Lesage (Rob); loving grandmother of Tyler, Tanner, Tory, and Tatum.  Rose Martina also adored a special great-grandson Robbie who visited her in BC.  She was an ever-supportive sister to Noel (Carol) Jones of Garden River, Ann Alice (Dennis) Mount of Sudbury, late Stephen (Helena) Jones, Dennis (late Evelyn) Jones, Theresa (Clarence Sweet) Jones, Sid (Eileen) Jones, Caroline (Randy) Barry, Joseph, late Brian (Dorothy), all of Garden River, and baby sister Verna Lee (Doug) Sewell of the Batchewana First Nation.  Marty was also a loyal sister to the Buller family; long-time friend of Linda Lewis; and a very special Aunt, Godmother and Great Aunt to many nieces and nephews.

We thank the countless staff at Stanford for the care and love of our Mother.  A very special thank you to Susan and Teresa for their laughter and humour.

Friends and family are invited to participate in a traditional Catholic viewing, funeral and burial at the Arthur Funeral Home in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Garden River, Ontario and Garden River Catholic Cemetery respectively.  The viewings are Sunday August 24 from 4-7pm and Monday August 25 from 9-10 am. The Funeral Mass and Interment will begin at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church at 11:00 am on Monday, August 25th, 2014 and conclude with lunch at the Loghouse in Garden River. 

Donations to the Alzheimer’s Society and/or the RMB Trust Fund for the constructing and placement of a Memorial Rose Bench and rose garden to be forever located at Stanford in Parksville BC would be greatly appreciated.  She was a resident favourite!
