She was the backbone of our family and taught each of us the importance of strength and passion. Mom enjoyed 30 years at one of her favourite spots, Sand Bay. Over the years she developed lifelong friendships. She always called a spade a spade and everyone always knew where they stood with her. Mom, our hearts are heavy and you have left us with so many cherished memories. Until we meet again mom, rest in peace. Forever loved but never forgotten. Immediate family will have a graveside service on Friday, May 24th at 11 a.m. A celebration of momís life will follow at Sand Bay family park on Agnew Lake on Saturday May 25, 2019 at 1 PM.
