KIRK, Flora Ellen - Her sunrise was November 15, 1916, and she slipped quietly with dignity into the sunset on October 19, 2017, (28 days from her 101st birthday), with family at her side.

Mom was the epitome of warmth, generosity and love. She lived her life with joy and humour and always had a witty, quick comeback when talking with family.

She was a good Mom and taught us what unconditional love was, manners, right from wrong, and how to spell. Mom said hard work will never kill you and she was a good example. This is how we will remember her.

Loving mother of daughters Lorraine, Marjorie(Marge) (Dwayne), Iola (Chris) and son Don (Judi).
