Memories from Mary’s Children
Our dear mother Mary enjoyed reading, watching the news and the Antique Road Show on TV. She and Conrad went to auction sales in Ontario and Quebec for years. They also went camping close to home, as well as in every state in the United States, except Hawaii. Mary took classes in oil painting and she became very good at it. We all have our favourites. She did lots of gardening and she loved to watch the many birds and the deer. Alan kept the feeders full of seeds and nuts.
Our mother was kind and generous, and we will miss her greatly.
