Nancy was dedicated to her family who always came first and loved playing cards with family and friends. She was an avid knitter and donated many pairs of mittens over the years. Nancy was born in Winnipeg and met her husband Alf while they were both stationed in Barriefield.
They moved to Oshawa following their wedding in 1947 where they lived until Alf retired.
Later they moved to their cottage on Chemong Lake where they spent 20 very happy years before moving back to Oshawa.
Thank you to all the staff at Wynfield Retirement Residence and the personal support workers who treated Nancy with dignity and kindness, especially Nicole, Cecilia and Nancy. You made life so much easier for her.
