It is with heavy hearts that the family of Rosemarie Louise Kat announce her passing at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on Thursday, August 27, 2020, at the age of 63 years. Left to cherish Rosemarie’s memory is her daughter, Jennifer Kat; siblings, Stanley Harris Jr., Robert (Sandra) Harris, David (Cyranne) Harris, Joseph (Carole) Harris, Herbert Harris and Laura (Harry) Hancock as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, great-nieces, great-nephews, aunts and uncles. She was predeceased by her parents, Stanley Harris Sr. and Janet Harris as well as her brother, Matthew Harris. Rosemarie was born on July 3, 1957, in Port Colborne, Ontario. She moved to Medicine Hat in 1976 after attending the Dewitt Carter Academy in her home town of Port Colborne. Rosemarie was a strong advocate for herself and others and had a powerful bond with all members of her family. She enjoyed all types of music, mediums of art, shopping, lady bugs and cats. The Calgary Flames and the Saskatchewan Roughriders were the sports teams that Rosemarie enjoyed watching the most. She served on the committee at CORE - Restrictive Procedures Board and was a member of the All Saints Anglican Church. Some of Rosemarie’s most memorable moments of her life were the birth of her daughter, getting married and attending her baby sister’s wedding. Her greatest achievements were graduating from the sewing group, animal therapy, SRSAN member and being a CORE Masters member through CORE. Her great attitude, awesome sense of humour and optimistic attitude towards life made Rosemarie a joy to be around.

    I am so sorry to hear about Rose. I remember her so well from when we were younger, and the thing I remember most about her, as everyone does, is her smile and her laughter. She found something good in every situation, she has an awesome soul. I have not seen Rose in a very very long time, but I remember her like it was yesterday. Sending my condolences to you all. Love Laurie. (Oldest of my Frederick sisters). 🌿❤️🌿

    I am deeply saddened by Rose's passing. She touched my life profoundly. Rose was one of my primary teachers in the art of living life to the fullest, seeking out what you want and finding like minded people to support you to get there! Rose's life story is admirable and her ability to advocate for herself and others is her legacy. I am proud to have walked, rolled, laughed, cried, advocated and maintained an appreciating friendship with Rose. My prayer is that I made a difference in her life. I know she made a difference in mine. Sorry I am unable to be at the service today in person. Please know I am watching it Live Stream and sending my love and blessing to you all. Rest In Peace Powerful Woman.
