Rosalie Gariepy / Gardipee

- Carol Vulliamy




Rosalie Howse nee Gariepy or Gardipee- 1884- 1951

 

Rosalie was born into a small Metis family in the early days.

Smoked meat, tanned hides for sewing clothing was her way

Aboriginal spirituality declined; the Medicine Man feared.

She desperately wanted her children to be Christian reared.

 

A good mom Rosalie was as she quietly tended to her work

Tucking children in- there was beadwork and yarn to rework.

With calm friendly demure, teaching others by example-

Rosalie lived a clean, moral life; her lessons free for sample.

 

 Illness she had with seizures and poor circulation present

Rosalie did not dwell on her challenges or feel resentment

She made the most of each day; complaints she did not say.

When others felt worried and scared, she said “time to pray.”

 

Grandchildren lovingly remember Rosalie’s kind gentle ways

Granny Rosalie would always have candy- quite an array!

Sometimes our Granny would smoke a pipe; “oh so funny.”

We wanted pictures but Granny was shy and went running.
