We are saddened to announce the passing of our dear Mom & Baba, Rose Marko on August 21, 2023. Mom was born October 20, 1929 to John & Eva Hrynyk at Myrnam, Alberta.  She attended New Myrnam High School then studied for her Registered Nursing designation at St. Joseph Hospital, Vegreville.  When she graduated nursing school in 1951, she was unable to gain a position in Myrnam so she nursed for a short period at Trochu. She finally obtained employment at Myrnam Municipal Hospital & remained until she ended her career there as matron.  She continued to practice nursing as a home care nurse until 1993 when she retired to her garden & flowers. On July 12, 1952 Rose married Peter Marko of Beauvallon.  They had 2 children, Brenda (Glenn Kerr), of Devon & Glen (Jocelyn Lamoureux) of Edmonton. Rose is also survived by 4 grandchildren, Ian & Colin Kerr, Isabel & Janeen Marko.  Rose was predeceased by her husband, Peter; & sister, Mary Lynkowski.
