February 24, 1929 ~ July 13, 2022
Orphaned at 2yrs old, Mom was raised at the Sacred Heart School in Yorkton Sask.
At 18 she struck out on her own and graduated in 1952 from the Misericordia Hospital in Edmonton as a RN. Shortly after, in 1953 Mom and Dad were married. Mom was always active and loved to go on cruises with Dad. She loved to walk, ski and with some fellow retirees from the U of A did precision skating and gymnastics.
A few years after our Dad passed Mom moved to Salt Spring and took up residence at Heritage Place. She still walked with her friend Monica and often stopped at The Salt Spring Inn or Moby’s for “refreshments”. Mom was very strong willed, with a sense of adventure and a wicked sense of humour.
Many thanks to Dr. Kalf for his care, the Lady Minto staff, and most of all, the kind and compassionate care of Sandy and the staff of Heritage Place.
Mom is survived by her children, Debbie, Rhea, Paul (Lynn), Grandchildren Tracy (Kaj) Tammy (Brad). Predeceased by her 7 siblings.
Mother’s Mass will be on August 27 2022 at 11:30am at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church on Drake Road with a Celebration of Life from 1:30pm-4:00pm at #2052-135 Brinkworthy Road.
