HUNSICKER

Rosie Hunsicker (Schneider) passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, at the age of 100 years, beloved wife of the late Paul Hunsicker who passed away in 2005. She leaves to cherish her memory four children, Fay Braun of Calgary, Ruth (Chuck) Orr of Medicine Hat, Myron (Jane) Huniscker of Medicine Hat and Marilyn Hunsicker of Havre, Montana; seven grandchildren, Paula, Cathy, Kim, Tom, Michael, Brandon and Alyson; sixteen great grandchildren; one sister, Esther and one brother, Fred. She was predeceased by her parents, Fred and Rosina; one daughter, Marion in infancy; one sister, Irene and one brother, Emil.
Rosie was born in Hilda on August 15, 1916. She had two sisters and two brothers. When Rosie was a year old, her family moved to Irvine where she resided until the age of 22. As a child, she did not have much time for play as she was responsible for looking after the younger children and did many of the household chores. In 1927, Rosie began working at the post office which was located in her father’s locally owned store, “Schneider Brother’s”. Her days were spent sorting the mail that would come into town on the train. Since there was no bank in the small town she was also responsible for the money brought in by the farmers from the local grain elevators. During her time in Irvine, Rosie became very involved with the local church and in 1939 decided to go to Bible School in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was during this year that she got engaged to her future husband, Paul Hunsicker. They were married in Cathay, North Dakota in 1940 and resided there for three years. Being the wife of a pastor involved moving to many different places; North Dakota, Nebraska, British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and California. When they retired, they moved back to Medicine Hat and spent winters in Arizona. It was during this period that Rosie decided to take up oil painting and created many beautiful, special paintings. Some of these paintings were displayed at Chinook Village, where she resided for the rest of her life. Rosie enjoyed living at Chinook and was involved with some of the activities as well as helping out at the corner store. She loved visits with her family members and would take short trips to see them for as long as she was able.
The funeral service will be held in the PATTISON CHAPEL on Friday, December 16, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. with Pastor Lance Duncalfe officiating. Interment will follow in the Hillside Cemetery.
