Vera was born near Herbert, SK, graduated high school and came to Manitoba where she married Dad on April 5, 1939. Mom and Dad farmed in Osborne, MB for all of their lives and were longtime members of the Avonlea United Church in Domain. They moved to Winnipeg in 1975 and became members of Trinity United Church in Fort Richmond where Mom re-connected with old friends and gained new, close ones. Above all, Mom's life revolved around her extended family and children. She was a proud, devoted mother and grandmother who encouraged and supported all of them in their endeavours. She loved lively discussions about politics, farming, sporting and world events. Her garden flowers and birds were a source of joy to her. She lived a full, active life and will be greatly missed. Should friends desire, donations can be made to Trinity United Church. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, July 8 at 2:00 p.m. at Trinity United Church, 933 Summerside Avenue.
