She is predeceased by her loving husband Walter 2011 and her many brothers and sisters

Mom was born March 23, 1922, in Star City Saskatchewan. She was a prairie girl at heart. She married Walter, the love of her life Nov. 4, 1942. They enjoyed 69 wonderful years together.They were long time residents of Savona

Mom’s world was her family and friends. She was proud and loved unconditionally all of her children, grand and great grand children.

Mom was always up for a Sunday drive or ready for any of their many trips she and Dad made throughout B.C. Alberta and Sask. to visit family and friends. They travelled across Canada in their motor home, to the Yukon, and Alaska. They also made a trip to England, Scotland and Ireland to look up family history. Mom was available for a game of crib, no matter the day or time – “didn’t care if she won or lost but always played to win”!!

She also loved to play Canasta, Chinese Rummy, Bingo and Chinese checkers to name a few.

All the kids had a turn playing games with Gramma

Mom missed Dad terribly, talked about him always and the wonderful life they had shared. They are now happy together once again.

We miss her already.

Our family would like to thank the Care Staff at Gemstones for their kindness, friendship and compassion for Mom

A special thank you to Dr. Howie for his understanding and care.

There will be a celebration of life in June details to be announced later.
