Born and raised in Winnipeg. During the Second World War, Mom worked for the War Department in Ottawa and met our Dad on the train. After marriage, she excelled working as a secretary in Winnipeg. She made many friends through the years with her outgoing personality. Mom was very supportive and proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Excellent cook, church organist, enjoyed her pets, music, bowling, crossword puzzles, casino, travelling and of course family visits. Thank you to HSC staff. Cremation has taken place.
