We feel this loss acutely! Our hearts ache with you, at this difficult time. Roma meant so much to so many of us and she surely will be missed. She was always so ‘young at heart’ and had a zest for life. What a beautiful soul! Her laugh and smile were contagious. Roma had a deep love for people that motivated her to tirelessly share her wonderful hope for the future with them (John 5:28, 29). May your happy memories of her bring you comfort at this difficult time. Our deepest and heartfelt condolences.

To Roma’s Family; Although I never met you personally, Roma talked of you often with such love and praise. She was a lovely person, so caring and freely sharing her time to help as many as she could to share the wonderful hope the Bible holds out to everyone. I loved her vibrant personality and her zest for life. She always was up for a dance or a game of cards. She will be sadly missed by you and everyone whose life she touched. Take comfort in your family and friends and all your wonderful memories. Listen now to her pleas for you to see her again in Paradise when she and all of you will be young, healthy and happy under Jehovah God’s Kingdom government. Our prayers and love are with you all.

To Roma’s Family, She never stopped talking about all of you except when she was talking about Jehovah and his Kingdom Government that will soon transfer the whole earth into a Paradise. She was one very fine lady with her Scottish Accent that she never lost. We just loved being close to her. We hope to see her in the Kingdom. With all our love and condolences, Del & Mary
Every time I visited Roma, she always talked about her family, especially her beloved grandsons. She was lots of fun, and I wish I had known her all her life. She was a great friend to me when I was young, even though she was already a grandmother. And she was always so cheerful and loving. I hope to see her again soon in the new world. She was a real treasure, and is precious in Jehovah’s memory.
Betty and Bradford Cunningham
Roma was such a loving and spiritual sister in our congregation. We will all miss her smile and the warmth that it gave to everyone knowing her. We all look forward to the time when Revelation 21:3-4 will take place. May Jehovah Bless and comfort her family.
Roma was one sweet, precious lady! Always smiling and laughing about something… Young at heart… She Loved Jehovah and loved her family, Talked about both with great love. May you all keep your memories close to your heart and know how much she loved you. We sure will miss seeing her and chatting with her at assemblies. Our sincere sympathy to you all.
Duane and Sheila Porter
Stan, Mason, John and Erica,
I’m so saddened by the loss of Roma a dear friend that it’s hard to put into words. She was so kind, generous, young at heart, full of laughter and hospitable. I admired her strength. I have so many memories….she gave me my first mincemeat pie, I took her for driving lessons, she took my kids out to the beach often and for ice cream and so much more. She had many sayings like “My mother always said a good listener is better than a bad talker” She lived what she believed. Roma had such a love for Jehovah and his word the bible. She will be missed by our whole family. I know your family will have a void in it with her gone. I hope that your good memories of her will bring you comfort now and in the future.
To the family of Rosemary MacLeod, I send my heartfelt sympathy on the occasion of the loss of your loved one.
With sincere condolences,

To Dear Roma’s Family and her large group of friends,
I was truly saddened to hear of the loss of this dear friend. I met Roma at a dance my friend was hosting and she was one of the chaperones. She kept us on the floor all night and that is how I have always found Roma with a great zest for life and a smile that made you smile back. Her love for Jehovah, her family and her friends made for an excellent example to imitate as a young person. Thank you for sharing her and please accept my sympathies.

Dear Stan,John, Mason, and Erica,
It has been such a joy to have known Roma. Her kindness and smile were always evident whenever she spoke about her family. She loved each of you very much. Roma was a loving spiritual sister to all of us in the Liverpool congregation too. Her care and concern for others were part of her loving nature. Her good humour was appreciated by all of us. About a year ago I particularly enjoyed reminiscing with Roma about her life in Glasgow. She shared stories of her life in Scotland from many years ago. I recall we had so much fun and laughed out loud a great deal. She was such good company.
Roma’s knowledge of The Scriptures was ingrained in her being. Roma shared her knowledge of hope with love,and compassion. Her faith was enduring…..We share in your sorrow. Please accept our love and deepest sympathy.
So sorry to hear of Roma’s passing. She was such a lovely woman. She always stop to chat with me even though I hadn’t been to the church for a lot of year. She certainly will be missed.
Gloria M McLeod
Dearest family and friends of our precious Roma. To have known her is to love her. Need the fulfillment of Rev 21:3,4 when tears of sadness and pain will be turned to tears of joy. As a mentor and dearest friend she is deeply missed. Our families had a special bond. Through marriage she was related to Dad’s mother, Ida Whynot-Bent-Grimshaw. Smile she would!!! Her heart felt expressions of her son, grandsons, granddaughter cannot be over emphasized together with the special place she had in her heart for Chenoa, Anika and Erica’s lovely girls. Stan, Mason,John,Erica and extended family please be consoled by beautiful memories and the marvellous hope ahead when God’s Will will be done as in heaven also on earth!!! What happy family reunions we will have in perfect peace health and prosperity. Our Very Special Sister taught us many things to benefit us now and in the future. Dinette thank you again for updates you gave me when I could not get in touch with Roma Love to your mother too please
My loving thoughts are with my children, Erika, John and Mason, their children, Chenoa, Anika, Harwin, and Lilah, and Roma’s son, Stan, on the loss of their beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother. May she rest in peace.
To the family of Rosemary MacLeod, I extend my sincere condolences. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers as you go thought these difficult times.
With heartfelt sympathy

My lovely Grandmother touched the lives of so many, and truly did her best to spread love throughout her family, and community. She always greeted my presence with a big embrace, and a sincere smile. She loved me unconditionally, and we spent many hours talking about life, our beliefs, and telling stories of those dear to us. To my family, Mason, Denette, John , Shawna, Anika, Chenoa, Rowan, and my father Stanley MacLeod, I am sending my love to all of you. Grandma will be missed, but she lived a long life, filled with love. May she rest in peace.
