In Loving Memory of Rose Marie Mulrooney (nee White)
January 27, 1960 – April 20, 2024
With the heaviest hearts, we announce the passing of our sweet Mother and Wife, Rose Marie Mulrooney (nee White) at the tender age of 64 years. Sadly, passed away on April 20, 2024 in the loving arms of her daughters, Colleen and Danielle and her Husband, Jackie at Carbonear General Hospital. Predeceased by her parents Daniel and Catherine White, parents-in-law John and Bernadette Mulrooney, aunt Mary and uncle Joe Ennis, great aunt Sister Mary Bertrand Hynes, brothers-in-law Anthony Spurvey and Steve Griffin and sister-in-law Marguerite Tobin. Leaving to mourn her loving and devoted husband John (Jackie) Mulrooney of 45 years; daughters Colleen Mulrooney (Joey Wells) and Danielle Roberts (Justin Roberts); grandchildren who she cherished dearly Claire Wells and Brayden Howlett-Vicars; sisters Paula White and Carol Ann White; brothers-in-law Pats (Chris), Dan (Barb), Berk (best friend Kay), Wayne (Tracey) and Tommy (Marilyn); sisters-in-law Loretta, Mame (Larry), Carm (Ray), Kitty (Charlie) and Dot (Darrell); plus a large circle of nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends. Rose touched the lives of so many and was loved by all that had the pleasure of her friendship. She never judged anyone and welcomed all with open arms and there was never a shortage of food for the crowd on special occasions. Rose devoted many years of service with the ladies auxiliary at the Star of the Sea Association as an honorary member. She was always there for her children and grandchildren, whether it was to come to St. John’s to take care of them or just to spend quality time. We were very blessed to have such a wonderful influence in our lives for so many years. She taught each and every one of us so much and made everyone feel special. She was well known for making special treats for special family and friends.
Special thanks to ICU and 7 th floor staff of Carbonear General Hospital for the amazing care and compassion they provided our Mother during her stay.
Resting at Maher’s Funeral Home in Placentia on Wednesday, April 24 from 11:00am-2:30pm and Funeral Service to take place at 2:30pm at Maher’s Funeral Home.

I made it home
I just wanted to let you know
That I made it home.
Everything is so pretty here,

So white, so fresh, so new.
I wish that you could close your eyes so
You could see it too.
Please try not to be sad for me,
Try to understand.
God is taking care of me…
I’m in the shelter of his hands.
Here, there is no sadness,
And no sorrow, and no pain.
Here, there is no crying,
And I’ll never hurt again.
Here it is so peaceful,
When all the angels sing.
I really have to go for now…
I’ve just got to try my wings.
Rose Marie Mulrooney (nee White)
