Authors » Rosalie Leaney
Rosalie Leaney was born and educated in Guildford and Midland, Western Australia. Early childhood illnesses determined her towards nursing, where she trained at Royal Perth Hospital and King Edward Memorial with post-graduate nursing in country Leonora and Perth metropolitan areas. She married Gordon Leaney and they were blessed with a son and two daughters. She had an abiding faith with love of the family, art and gardening. Life was good. In 1993, life changed forever with a massive intracerebral haemorrhage that confronted the whole family with the opportunity to disintegrate or grow in ways they never thought possible.
