Peacefully, on December 11, 2020, Rose Philippe passed away at Health Sciences Centre, at the age of 89.
The youngest in the family of François and Marie-Anne (Guigueno) Philippe, she was predeceased by her siblings; Julienne (Dion), Louis, Julien, Bernadette, Yves, John, Germaine, and Sr Marie SGM, and by her nephew Gilbert Dion.
She is survived by niece Yvette Dion of Winnipeg, by Gilbert's children; Michel Dion, Marc Dion, Melanie Dion, and their families, their mother, Louise Dion, and by relatives of the Philippe family here and in France.
Also left to mourn are her sister-in- law, Pamela Philippe, her nieces Denise and Susan, and their families in BC.
Teaching was her lifetime career, from Aubigny in 1950 to Lorette, St. Malo and Flin Flon, then on to Winnipeg. She took a year off to study at the Sorbonne in Paris, a time she cherished. In later years, she moved back to her home town of St. Claude where she returned to teaching half time while looking after her aging mother.
The family is eternally grateful to the staff at the St. Claude Pavilion for the compassionate and kind care Rose received over the years, during this last season of her life.
In keeping with Rose's wishes, cremation has taken place, and due to Covid-19 restrictions a private funeral will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Rose may be made to St. Claude Pavilion, or to Central Plains CancerCare, or to St. Claude Regional Archives.

Adam's Funeral Home of Notre Dame de Lourdes, Manitoba in care of arrangements. Phone 204-248-2201.
