July 30, 1927 – January 22, 2018

On the morning of January 22, 2018, our wee Irish mom passed silently to join her husband of 69 years, Frederick. She was predeceased by sons Johnny and Rory, sons-in-law Doug Chalmers and Stewart Ganton. Mom will forever be in the hearts of her remaining family: brother Tom Wright (Del) and her children Kathleen (Al), Maureen, Timothy (Mary), Kevin (Jean), Colleen, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Mom was born in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland and although the majority of her life was spent in Canada, she never let us forget the importance of always remembering your roots and the affect they have on who you are.

Being married to a military man, Mom was able to see much of Canada while raising her family. As Dad was reassigned to a new airbase, us kids were placed strategically into the vehicle and ferried off to our next adventure.

Our Mom was the cornerstone of the family, ensuring we were up for school or work, lunches made, clothes clean and tailored, dinners made (lots of meatloaf), boo-boos repaired and arguments settled. Mom was always there to lend an ear in support, always remaining objective and loving.

Mom warmly embraced her extended family as her own, always making sure they felt included in her love for family.

Bye-de-bye for now, Mom. Kisses.
