Obituary of Morley Rose

Of Mount Albert passed away peacefully at Markham Stouffville Hospital on January 18, 2021 of natural causes. Morley was greeted into heaven by Jesus, his wife, Anne (Smalley), as well as many loved ones who have gone on before.

Morley loved his family dearly. He was the father of: Mary-Anne (Kevin), Dale (Marion) & Georgia-Lea (John). Proud Papa of: Danielle (Dean), David (Rebekah), Michelle (Jordan), Samuel, Emily & Jacob. Great ‘Grand’ Papa to: Keira, Brittany, Olivia, Anna, Maclean, Benjamin, Hayward, Finley, William & Gilbert.

Morley is survived by his brother and best friend Harvey (Elaine), as well as his sisters: Margaret (Jack), Marlene (Harry) & Beth (Don). Predeceased by his brothers Vernon, Don (Shirley) & Stuart. Special brother-in-law to the Smalley family. He was loved by all of his many nieces and nephews.

Morley called the farm in Mount Albert his home for 70 years. There he milked cows, fed pigs, grew potatoes and cash cropped. The farm was his hobby, always reading the ‘farm paper’ cover to cover and enjoying the trek to farm shows. Any vacations he took were usually farm related. He and Anne met farmers from all over Ontario on those tours.

Morley faithfully served his Lord & Savour through the years. Being a man of very few words he worked quietly behind the scenes doing practical things at the church. He supported mission endeavours at home and abroad, wanting everyone to know the saving grace of Jesus.

“No more crying, no more weeping

No more sad or lonely days

‘Cause on that river, I’ll be smiling

When my Saviour calls my name”
