Mar 14, 1936 – May 23, 2018
This is a privilege granted to few. Today, May 23rd, 2018, I write my own obituary.

As many of you already know, I have been fighting cancer for the past few months and sadly no matter how hard I tried, the cancer has won. So today at 1.30 p.m., May 23, 2018, my life on this earth will come to an end. I am so blessed that I have this choice and if this government does nothing else during its tenure, this gift of the Right to Die legislation is more than enough.

So, I wanted to thank the people of Gold River, which has been our home for almost 37 years, for allowing the privilege of serving you through my work with The Record. It was an honour.  We have made great friends and you know who you are, and I am grateful for the way my life has been enriched with those friendships. I wish the community all the very best over the coming years, and sincerely believe that good things are in store for this beautiful community.

In closing, I want to thank my family for their total support of my decision to end my life. It is hard on them as we are a very tight knit and loving family but not one of them has wavered. 

To my darling husband Jesse, thank you for 60 wonderful years of marriage. You have been my lover, my partner and my rock, and I love you even more than I did 60 years ago. We will meet again I know and I will be waiting for you with open arms.

I have had more laughter than tears in my life, so I intend to go out with a smile on my face. If I have touched your life in any way, I hope you will remember me fondly. I am not going to say good bye as that is too final for me, instead I will say Au Revoir which means until we meet again. God bless you all.
