Mom was born in Briarlea, SK, July 25 1930. She met dad on November 17, 1954 and was married December 17, 1954. They had 7 kids together, and she worked at Mont St Joseph Home and took care of special needs people for over 40 years. She was a long-time member of TOPS. A testament to her caring and loving personality, she was the smiling face sitting at the table, in her spot, waiting to welcome her next visitor into her home. It didn’t matter where they were travelling, near or far, Grandma always had to stop at the café for a coffee and fries.
Thank you to the staff of Jubilee Lodge Home for looking after mom for the last 4 years, we all very much appreciate it.
