Born in Lac Verte, Saskatchewan, passed away peacefully on November 26, 2016 in the excellent palliative care of Northumberland Hills Hospital.

For the last four years she resided at Port Hope's Roseglen Village, often praising the fellowship and care available there.

"We hold you close within our hearts, and there you will remain;
to walk with us throughout our lives, until we meet again."
