Rosaly Ann (Lade) Sanok, aged 81 of Rockford, Michigan passed away April 9, 2021, surrounded by her loving family, after a courageous battle with cancer. She is survived by her children, Marie (Brian) Duncan; Cynthia (Danny) Sapp; Theresa (Dave) Mulcrone; Dave Widner; Sean Widner; James Widner; Patrick (Stephanie) Widner; 19 wonderful grandchildren and 12 adorable great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband of 21 years, Donald Widner, her (2nd) husband Thomas Sanok, her son Donald “Lester” Widner and her beautiful granddaughter Savannah “Jo” Widner.
Rose was a selfless and loving person who was always giving, no matter her means. She enjoyed the simple things in life and found great pleasure in just spending time with her family, bird watching, singing, gardening, cooking, doing arts & crafts, dancing, touring light houses and just sitting around a bonfire. She could often be found reading a good book or “keeping [her] mind sharp” working on Word Searches. She loved to walk and had a pep in her step that was simply unmatched (it was seriously hard to keep up with her). Nana to many, she was deeply loved by her entire family and will be terribly missed by all. Her impact is evident in so many ways!
A private memorial service will be held for the family on Saturday, May 8, 2021. Per her wishes, a Celebration of Life will follow for anyone and everyone that loved her, from 11am to 6pm, at the Cannon Township Hall located at 6878 Belding Rd. Rockford, Mi 49341. In lieu of flowers, Rose had requested that donations be made to her favorite charilty- St Judes’s Children’s Hospital.
