Rosanne Poitras

 

Rosanne attended the same Bible College as her husband, after studying teaching at the University of New Brunswick.  Her leading church music, Sunday School and ladies functions in their over 30 years of marriage and ministry together has always been very appreciated. You will enjoy Rosanne's pleasant spirit the most. It’s contagious.
