Rosa Zowa Obituary


(May 5, 1930 - February 13, 2024)

   It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Rosa Zowa, formerly of Coleman, Alberta.  She was called home into the arms of our Lord on February 13, 2024 at the age of 93 years.

   Rosa was born in Petronell, Austria to parents, Franz and Theresia Dunshirn.  She blossomed into a lovely and graceful young lady who captured the heart of a fine young man, Rudy Zowa, and they were wed in holy matrimony and soon blessed with two children.  They immigrated to Lethbridge, Alberta in 1957 and after being further blessed with two more precious children, they moved to Coleman, Alberta in 1972. 

   Rosa loved nature and the mountains and although she enjoyed going for walks, dancing and music, her greatest joy was her family.  She was a wonderful and inspirational wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a true friend to many.

   She leaves mourn her passing and to celebrate her memory are her three remaining children, Christine (Dwayne), Peter (Christine) and Patricia (Norm); five cherished grandchildren, Jennifer, Alex, Elizabeth, Sheldon and Akacia; five precious great-grandchildren; and numerous extended family and friends.  She was predeceased by her beloved husband of fifty-nine years, Rudy Zowa; her eldest child, Siegfried Zowa; and her parents, Franz & Theresia Dunshirn.

   The private family memorial service celebrating Rosa’s life was held at Fantin’s Funeral Chapel (13461-20th Ave) in Blairmore, Alberta.  Donations in memory of the late Rosa Zowa may be directed towards myeloma research.  Condolences may be registered at
