THORNBURY, Rosetta 'Rota' (Hatch) Loving wife to Ronald, grandmother, aunt and friend passed away peacefully, but all too suddenly at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital on February 10, 2014. Born to parents George and Florence Hatch in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1937, she moved to Toronto in 1963 where she married the love of her life. She leaves behind her husband, sons Adrian (Lisa) and Julian (Kristi) and a large family who loved her dearly. She was a doting "Grandie" to Sebastian, Avery, Daley and Dash. Predeceased by her brother David Hatch, sister Harriet Caters and sister-in-law Jocelyn Hatch, she will be dearly missed by brother Roy, sister-in-law Loretta Hatch, brother-in-law Nathaniel Caters, nieces, nephews and many friends. Rota had a passion for travel and enjoyed a lengthy career in tourism along side best friends Audrey and Richard Johnston. She loved a cup of tea, exploring the shops, her weekly coffee date with "the girls", and a great laugh. She was devoted to her family for which we will always be grateful. We will forever miss her love and support, but are thankful for the wealth of warm memories of a life well lived. A Celebration of Life will be held at The Oakville Club, 56 Water Street, Oakville, on Monday, February 17, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
