Peacefully at Lakeridge Health Oshawa, with her daughters by her side.
Mom was a gentle soul who worked tirelessly, devoting her entire life to caring for her family.
She was a devoted wife to Ralph for 63 years. He predeceased her in 2006.
She was the cherished Mom to her children: infant son Kenneth (predeceased), Janis (Merrick), Ron (Ann), Gail (Rick), Ted, Nancy (Bill) and Carolyn.
She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren: Todd (Susan), Jill (Marc), Tara (Scott), Dana (Christine), Jenna (Lindsey), Kelly (Johnathan), Jeffrey (Adrienne), Craig (Shannan), Terri and Angela. She also leaves behind 16 Great-Grandchildren.
Mom loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren very much. Her eyes would light up when they came to visit her.
She was the last surviving of 8, predeceased by her sisters, Noreen, Margaret, Ruth and Muriel and her brothers, Bob, Jim and Don. She will also be missed by her furry companions Stanley and Abby.
Thank you to Dr. P. Libby for his professional care and guidance for many years. The family also wants to acknowledge Carolyn for her exceptional care of Mom for the past 14 years.
As per Mom’s wishes, cremation has already taken place.

WILL LOVE AND MISS YOU ALWAYS
FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS.
