Rushbrooke, Daryl Elizabeth ("Rush")
1955 - 2013
Daryl's family is extremely saddened to announce her passing on Friday, November 8, 2013 at her home in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Daryl was born in Evesham, Worcestershire, England, the second daughter of Ron and Mollie (Mary) Rushbrooke. At the age of 14, she immigrated to Canada with her family and attended Indian Head High School where she excelled in sports. After high school she attended the University of Saskatchewan graduating with Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Science (Phy. Ed) degrees and was pleased to accept a full-time teaching position at Wesmor school in Prince Albert where she taught for many years before transferring to Riverside Community School. In 2011, Daryl retired from teaching and looked forward to spending more time fishing and relaxing at her cottage at Little Bear Lake, however, life took a nasty turn when she was diagnosed with cancer in September, 2012. Daryl was predeceased by her parents, Ron and Mollie Rushbrooke; maternal Grandparents, Ernest and Phoebe (Nell) Roberts; paternal grandparents, Bertie and Ruby Rushbrooke; and paternal grandmother Amelia Louise Fulcher whom she never met.
