Mom will be missed by many friends, relatives and her church family.
Mom loved her church, the Salvation Army. A devoted soldier in Whitby since 1965. Playing the organ, leading her Bible studies, Women's Ministries, Christmas Hampers, The Red Shield Appeal, Home League, and much more.
She loved us all. Mom was long suffering. A woman of prayer. Her Bible never out of reach. We, as her children, can rest assured that the Lord has heard our names many times. God bless her.
A very special thank you to her daughter in law Sara, who's love and devotion to our mother was simply, amazing. Sara cared for Mom in the last year with such dignity and grace. They shared a special bond. To her granddaughter Natalie, who filled in at times and never missed a beat. Her strength and loving care, evident. We thank you.
We are grateful for the health care Mom was able to receive at home.
Thank you to Dr. McAllister of the Palliative Care team, the many ParaMed nurses, especially Mona, who always had a calming and cheerful way with Mom.
A special thank you to Mom's PSW Crystal, who bonded with Mom from the start. The care and love for Mom was so touching.
