I met Ros through NEARA. Condolences to Sue. They both were inspirational, hard working, brilliant women. Ros once encouraged my approach to dowsing, in the face of some “mansplaining”, for which I have always been grateful! 100 years of a life well lived!

The warmth and energy Ros radiated will shine on in our universe for eternity. Her contribution to understanding the Human condition, by researching our distant past is a legacy others will follow and emulate.

I have not had contact with Roslyn for several years.  Seeing her obituary so many memories of her vitality, creativity, willingness to follow her own heart and shift her direction to match her own guidance flooded in.  And then how much she taught and held the container for the 'antiquities' and the sites that remain for us all to discover more about our roots!''
Such a full and accomplished life.  Sending my condolences for her family and close community!'

I have a feeling of place within the lineage of human beings because of my encounters with Ros. This is one of the many gifts she gave me. I am forever grateful for the time I spent with her and know her life was thoroughly well lived.
