It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rosanne Hollingshead of Maidstone, Saskatchewan. Rosanne passed away on April 20, 2020 at the Battleford Union Hospital with her loving husband by her side. Her beautiful smile will be dearly missed by all of those who were lucky enough to know her.
Rosanne grew up on a farm by St.Denis, Sk, she was so proud to be a farmers daughter. She met the love of her life early on in life at the age of 19, her and Rob married and had three children. Rosanne and her family moved from Saskatoon to Sherwood Park and then made their final move to Maidstone, Sk. Rosanne was proud of many things in her life but her husband, children and grandchildren were without a doubt at the top of that list. Rosanne found a second family with the RCMP at the Maidstone detachment, she poured her heart and soul into everything she did there and was proud to be with her work family everyday.
Rosanne poured her life into everything she did; often saying that if something is worth doing, it better be done right. She was happiest when surrounded by the ones she loved, whether that be a one-on-one for coffee or in a house full of family and friends.
