It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear loving mom at the Ruddy Shenkman Hospice.

She will be greatly missed by her loving children Wanda (Fred), Waneta (late Neil) (late Bruce), Brenda (Steve), Pauline (Lyle), late Stewart and Steven. She leaves behind her 8 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
