Rosalyn Bashara Canty, 81, passed away peacefully on January 31, 2020, at Collier Hospice in
Wheat Ridge. Rosalyn Dyann was born December 1, 1938, to Charles Thomas Bashara and Mary Ann Munyer Bashara in Algona, Iowa. She was the middle child between her older sister Beverly Bashara Moustgard and younger brother Thomas Bashara.

She met the love of her life Thomas Canty on a blind date in December of 1968. He proposed to her in February of 1969 and they were married in June of 1969. They purchased their home in Westminster and resided there until 1999. After their daughter, Nicole was born she stayed at home to care for her family.
