To Rosaline Tafler's Family - You don't know me, but I was really touched reading this obituary. Rosaline sounded like a delightfully spirited woman. She reminded me of my own mother-in-law, who passed away in May of this year, also at 97 years of age, and who often wrote poetry. All this to say, I purchased "Vice Versa" on Amazon and am awaiting delivery. We are truly the lucky ones having those so vibrant in our lives.

My sincere condolences to all her family on the passing of Roz. I worked with her for almost ten years She always had a poem for us every morning and a joke to start off our day. I kept in touch with her by phone, and she was always happy to speak to me. I shall miss her.

My condolences to the entire family for the loss of a beautiful woman, full of sense of humor. I was sad to learn the news about her passing away. I played piano for her at Maimonides, and I will continue to do so in her memory. Edwin Brownell

May her memory be for a blessing. I am from the Sam Tafler side of the family, Rosaline from Myer, Sam's brother. My parents named me after Rosaline's brother Sidney, who died fighting the Nazis in WWII. Rosaline would have been the last of her generation, she and the others had a great impact ofntheir descendants and the communities they lived in.

I used to volunteer (pre covid) on the 7th floor at Maimonides. I visited with Roey my dog. Visiting with Rosaline gave me so much pleasure. I always laughed with her while there was always a wonderful message delivered with one of her many stories. A pile of activity books, crossword puzzles, jokes, and wonderword puzzle books lined the edge of her bed. We used to laugh and say together “if you use it you won’t lose it” I am lucky enough to have her book of poems on my night table. Roz was an incredible woman, who lived ahead of her times. Treasure the wonderful memories. Marilyn Iny

Dear Louis and Marinoff and Tafler families, I'm very sorry to hear of the passing of Roz. I have many fond memories of her sharp wit and culinary skills. I never knew how she could come home after a day's work and serve a perfectly roasted chicken and the best chocolate cake I've ever tasted, but I was thankful every time. I still think of her every time I'm downtown at Peel and Ste. Catherine, where she worked 50 years ago. I was so glad to have attended her book signing and catch up with family stories. I'm confident your cherished memories of her will live on and console you.

To Roz's family, pre-pandemic I used to see Roz almost daily on the 7th floor. She was always a ray of sunshine, happy and smiling. Rest in peace Roz.

Leslie Ann Ungar Wener - 24 days ago

Since the pandemic, I have not been at Maimonides, so I haven't seen Roz since March. Such a lovely lady. Rest in Paradise. Leslie (worked 5th floor).

Sending you lots of love. Cherish the memories. How lucky are we all to have a beautiful book of poetry for many years to come.
