Mom was born January 7, 1926 in Edmonton Alberta. Her dad Art was playing professional hockey in the NHL. The family moved to Kamloops in 1929 where Art worked for the CNR. Mom attended St. Ann's Academy from Grade 1 to her commercial training. During her school years she was an active member of the CYO. After leaving school she worked for the Government and Joyce's Fashion.
Mom married Dad on September 25, 1948. They were lifetime friends, neighbours on Battle Street and school chums. Family was most important to Mom and as the family grew so did her love for each and every one of us. Special times were at the family cabin at Magna Bay where mom could be found on the beach or in #1. Mom loved her garden and spent many hours nurturing and caring for her flowers. Mom and Dad celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with many friends and relatives it was one of their many highlights in life. Mom and Dad travelled extensively with General Motors and also in retirement. Mom was a Lifetime member of the CWL at Sacred Heart Parish.
Most recently Mom was in hospital when she returned to Ridgeview she expressed that she was happy to be back "with her people". We would like to express our enteral thanks to the nurses and care aids over the years that helped to assist our mom with her day to day routines. Their care, compassion, kindness and dedication were exemplary. Thank you Doctor Wynn for your professional care and advice over the years.
Tara Bauer; Mom's Tuesday companion, we can't even begin to thank you for lovingly documenting your excursions from magazines perusals to coffee dates. You are very special to each and every one of us.
'Mom where you go we go' ~ until we meet again
God Bless You ~ We love you
