Mom enjoyed many things: playing cards, bingo and scrabble - not too many people beat her at Scrabble - golf, curling, painting, collecting bells and any other craft she tried. She loved her family, was a great cook, kept a beautiful yard and garden and enjoyed entertaining family and friends.
She was a member of numerous community groups - Spruce Creek Ladies, Dauphin Pioneer Association, Royal Purple, Senior Centre, Hospital Auxiliary, The Red hatters to name a few.
The family wish to thank everyone for their support during this difficult time.
