Heartfelt gratitude to the staff of Unit 3 at Lions Manor, Placentia for the love, care and compassion shown to Mom over her three and a half years’ stay, and more recently, to the staff of Fairhaven and Inglewood at St. Luke’s Home for providing such fine care and comfort in her final days. Special thanks to Dr. Robert Power of Placentia Health Center. 

Mom’s entire senior life was spent giving of herself through volunteering at the Lion's Manor, for which she was honoured with the Governor General Caring Canadian Award. She was also an honourary member of the Star of the Sea Ladies Auxilliary, a long time member of Placentia Hospital Auxilliary, a Sacred Heart Parish choir member, and a number of other community events and organizations. Anyone who knew Mom knew she loved music, dancing, and a good party, and never missed an opportunity to get together with family and friends.

Flowers gratefully accepted or donations may be made in Mom’s name to Lion's Manor Recreation Department.
