Vivian S. (Naismith) Rose passed peacefully on July 31, 2014 at age 85. Born in Almonte, Ontario to the late Peter Naismith and Eva Coon, she spent much of her youth with her beloved friend, Marilyn Houston and family who provided her with endless love and security. Her drive for adventure sent her to Bermuda as a nurse and later to settle in the US to start a family. She will be remembered for her fierce Canadian pride, reverence for her Naismith name, her love of having fun and her keen wit. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Stephanie and John Devins, and three grandchildren, Victoria, Christopher and Emily of Skaneateles, NY. Per her wishes, a private memorial service was held in her home.
