“She had no idea what she was doing,” she wrote.
Rose Wilder was a member of the Royal Australian Navy’s Royal Australian Artillery.
Alexis wrote that she was told that she had been the first to visit her sister’s grave in Brisbane on December 15, 2017, at 10.30am.
She said she went to the grave and saw her sister “wearing a white suit, a white shirt, a grey suit, no shoes and no tie”.
Rose was at home in Brisbane with her sister when she was rushed to hospital by ambulance.
After her sister died, Rose wrote, she “couldn’t believe that she could have done anything to help”.
Alexi said she had no plans to write a book about her sister or about her relationship with Rosas.
In a statement, the Royal Australia Artillery said it was “deeply saddened by the loss of Rosas Lane, a wonderful and inspirational member of our Royal Australian Regiment”.
“Her life and legacy will live on through the generations, as we carry on the legacy of our proud service to Australia and our nation,” it said.
The Royal Australian Marine Force said Rosas died of natural causes on December 16, 2017 at the age of 60.
