|Rose Ellen Chaddic
Rose Ellen Chaddic, 84, a longtime resident of The Dalles, died at her daughterís home on Oct. 7, 2009.
She was born Sept. 22, 1925 in Portland, to Edward and Rose Etta (McNamee) Cunnion. She grew up on a ranch near Ashwood, until she went to boarding school. She graduated from St. Maryís Academy.
She married Edward Park Chaddic on May 28, 1960. Their romance resulted in a marriage of nearly 50 years, three children (plus those who hung out at the house) and an untold number of housecats and dogs. They traveled around the U.S. and as far away as Egypt. For the last few years, she cared for Ed, who suffered from Alzheimerís. In his last coherently spoken words to her, Ed asked Rose, ďDo you still love me?Ē She replied, ďOf course I do.Ē
Once it was apparent Ed had reached his last days, Rose allowed herself to relax and she seemed to let the years catch up with her almost overnight. She passed away one day after Edís funeral.
Many may remember her as a cook at school, but over the years she volunteered thousands of hours at church, school and sporting events or other organizations.
She was a member of St. Peterís Catholic Church, Altar Society, St. Barbaraís Circle and Eagles and enjoyed rummage sales, bake sales, spaghetti feeds, Navy Mothers, baseball concession stands, sports events, talking on the phone with family and friends and family pets.
She is survived by her sons, Michael Chaddic and his fiancť Sharon Thomas, and John Chaddic and his wife Felicia; her daughter, Rosemary Dicus and her husband Larry; her grandchildren, Jennifer and Jaclyn Chaddic, Andrew Parker Chaddic, Katye, Brysen, Brooke and Haley Uhalde and her nieces and nephews in Ireland.
Viewing will be held on Friday, Oct. 9, 2009 from 2 p.m. through the Recitation of the Rosary at 7 p.m. at Spencer, Libby and Powell Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Oct. 10, at 11:30 a.m. at St. Peterís Catholic Church with burial to follow at St. Peterís Catholic Cemetery.
Memorials may be made to Heart of Hospice, 1020 Wasco, Ste. C, Hood River, OR 97031.
