JANG – ROSE (LEONG) Dec. 30, 1925 – Sept. 15, 2009

After a courageous battle with cancer, Rose passed away peacefully at home with her daughters at her side. Predeceased by her husband Sang in 1966, daughter Randi in 1969, son Ron in 2004 and stepson Jerry in 2003. Rose will be sadly missed by her children: Sharon (Terry), Sam, Marj, Donna (Edmund), Luana, Collin (Becky), Mark, step-daughter Yuet-Lin, daughters in-law Audrey and Jenny as well as 14 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by 4 sisters, 5 brothers, numerous nieces, nephews and many devoted friends. Rose raised her family and ran Jang’s Restaurant in Prince George until 1980, when she moved to Kelowna to operate the Okanagan College Snack Bar until retirement in 1992. Since then, she has enjoyed living amongst wonderful friends and neighbours in Shaughnessy Green, and her travels have included several memorable trips and cruises in North America, Europe and Asia. Rose especially enjoyed family gatherings and spending time with her grandchildren. A fabulous cook and baker, she often treated family and friends to afternoon teas or delicious meals. Rose’s strength, kindness, generosity and love touched all who knew her. Her friendly and warm nature always made people feel welcome and special. Our sincere gratitude to family and friends for their thoughtfulness and support. Special thanks to Carol (Rose’s daughter by affection) and Grant Wereley, Dr. Alexandra Thomson, and the Home and Hospice Palliative Care teams for the extraordinary compassion, care and support given to mom and our family.
