Naomi Judith Rose. Born 26 November 1954; Died 16 March 2016, age 61. Naomi was the third of four children of Gerald z”l and Gladys Rose, and the sister of Kathryn Cooper z”l (Gerald Cooper), Toby Rose (Leslie Klein) and David Rose (Marlene Kates Rose). She was married to Stanley Sinai for almost 18 years, and stepmother to Joanne Sinai (James), Adam Sinai (Vered) and Hayley Sinai (Jeffrey). She was also Nana to Owen and Liam and Safta Naomi to Yalli and Mieloh. Naomi was also the loving aunt of Rebecca Cooper (David Poster), Mark Cooper (Alissa), Jonathan (Casandra Campbell), Solomon, and Benjamin (Eden Ross) Klein, Mira, Aaron (Haley Adams), Isaac, Noah, Joseph and Jacob Kates Rose. Naomi was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and attended the University of Saskatchewan (BA, Honours Certificate, English and Political Science), York University MA, English and course work for Ph.D.), and the University of Toronto (MBA in Marketing). Her working career spanned stints at Bristol-Myers and Imperial Oil; Vice-President and Publisher of TV Guide; positions as Managing Director of RMS, Executive Director of the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre and Vice-President of Strategic Communications at Women’s College Hospital; Director positions at the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation; and most recently Director of the Strategic Planning and Integrated Marketing Branch of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, where she was highly respected as a leader, mentor and colleague. Naomi was much loved by friends and family across Canada and beyond. She revelled in family life and loved nothing more than the noise and hubbub of relatives and friends, cooking and entertaining in the style which she knew best. She was the ever-present Auntie Naomi, always early at every event and always the last to leave, and only when the cleaning up was finished. She brought that same energy, passion and commitment to her professional and volunteer life. She was a voracious reader, and could converse with ease and great insight across a broad range of topics. She will be missed by all who knew her, and she has left us far too soon and with too much still to be done.
