Name this Rose

This rose was purchased by mail order from Ontario in 2003/2004. Two specimens were planted on either side of the entrance pergola. The southern bloomed for the first time in 2007, and the northern is blooming for the first time now. Unfortunately, I have no record of what I ordered, no labels can be found, and they were not what I ordered to begin with! Sloppy record keeping on my part, can anyone help identify this rose? It is semi-double and the petals are a soft pale yellow, with just the hint of pink blush toward the edges.
Very attractive, and so far hardy. The south plant had bad die-back this spring, but is now sending up good strong new growth.

      1. Hmmmm…maybe ‘Dr. Eckener’, a hybrid rugosa hardy to zone 4.

        (I am looking at roses in my guide book as part of my research for my garden and happened across a picture that looks a lot like yours)
