Obituary

Mae Madeline (Long) Roselle

7 October 1935 - 19 September 2021



The family of Mae Roselle, with very sad hearts, announce her peaceful passing on Sunday, September 19, 2021 at the Good Sam Clearwater Centre Long Term Care, Rocky Mountain House.

Mae was born at home, in the Buster Creek district northwest of Rocky Mountain House, to Hollis & Madeline Long.

Mae was raised at Buster Creek, along with her 4 brothers and 1 sister, on the family farm. She attended the Buster Creek country school, which was located on her uncle’s farm. One year, all of the students at the school were Longs; Mae and her siblings, as well as their cousins, also Longs.

Mae had many talents that she developed from the time she was a teen, such as cooking, sewing, knitting, crocheting, and embroidery. There were always many chores and activities to do on the farm; gardening, lots of berry picking, outside work, and not to forget horseback riding. In the summer the family would go down to the Baptiste River for the afternoon to fish and have picnics.

When Mae was older and finished school, she came into Rocky for her first job to live with a family to help with housekeeping and looking after kids. Around this time, she met Joe, who later became her husband in November 1955.

In December of 1956, Ken, the first of three kids was born, followed by Heather in 1961 and Colleen in 1967. Life became a little busier with the kids being involved in various after-school activities. Mae continued to work part time and full time as a career cook during these years, as well as many years following until she retired. On their days off, Mae and Joe would load up the kids and go camping many of the summer weekends; something they continued to enjoy throughout the years up until last year. Many great camping trips, and other trips, were enjoyed with family and friends.

Mae and Joe bought an acreage at Ferrier Acres in 1980 where they continued to live until last fall when they moved into the Westview Lodge in Rocky. They were very active with the Ferrier Community Club over the years and enjoyed socializing with their various neighbors. Mae was a member of the Church of the Nazarene in Rocky, and her church family was important to her.



Once both Joe and Mae retired in the early 2000s, they were able to take more time to go on various trips, including visiting family from further distances. They also very much cherished spending time with their grandchildren.

Mae is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, Joe; her son Ken (Lorna) and family - Jessi (Amber); Shylin (Riley) and Ruby; daughter Heather (Ron) Holman and family - Allan (Saara), Saku and Santtu; Kyle; Taylon and Teagan; daughter Colleen (Mike) and daughters Erin and Caitie.

Also survived by her siblings Howard (Stella); June Anger; Norman (Joanne); and Glen (Lorna); as well as various family members on Joe’s side. Many nieces and nephews, as well as a host of very dear friends, who meant a lot to her.

She was predeceased by her parents Hollis & Madeline Long, Colin Roselle (father-in-law), Jennie Roselle (mother-in-law), brother Don Long, and brother-in-law Robert Anger.

Interment has taken place with a family gathering.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date when restrictions allow.

If so desired, memorial donations can be made in Mae’s name to the Westview Lodge, or the Good Samaritan Society Clearwater Centre, both in Rocky Mountain House, AB.
