It is with sadness we report the passing of Rosemary’s father Bob Diprose on Nov. 20 in Stettler at the age of 89 years. His passing will leave a large hole in our family. The funeral for Bob will be held on Nov. 28 at 2 p.m. at the Stettler Funeral Home.

Thought for the day — “Home — where your feet may leave, but not your heart.”
