Mom travelled to Canada at the age of 21 to rejoin with the love of her life and also became a talented, well known seamstress for Dublin and area for many years. She was a loving, dedicated, amazing mom and grandma that also enjoyed friends, good times and being a generous host. Her witty, kind and accepting personality will never be forgotten. “To know her was to love her.” Special thanks to the wonderful staff for their love, care and support that was given to mom and our family during her stay at the Ritz Villa.
