Mom was a hard worker all her life and her greatest joy was spending time with her family especially at the cottage. Her enjoyed pass times were playing cards, going to Bingo and her casino trips. Mom and her sister-in-law Carla always knew how to get to a casino okay, but coming home was always a long lost adventure.
Dad and Mom were loyal members to the Army, Navy and Air Force Club where they met many friends they shared many good times with.
A special thank-you to all her PSWs, nurses and activity team for all their wonderful care at Westmount Long Term Care as well as the nurses on the 5th floor of Grand River Hospital for the care they gave our mother.
