While Dad held her hand and with family at her side, Mom passed away in the early hours of November 11. She had been living with Alzheimer’s disease for many years and throughout kept her sense of humour. Her smile always greeted her visitors when they came to New Horizons Care Facility.

We cannot thank Mom’s caregivers at New Horizons and the 3rd Floor nurses at CR Hospital enough for their compassion and understanding.

She leaves behind Lawrence, her husband of 62 years, children Cindy, Earl, David and their families.

Julie so aptly described Mom on Nov 7.

“While holding her hand last night I was telling her of all the wonderful things her hands had done in her lifetime. Knitted sweaters and baby blankets to keep her grandchildren warm, advent calendars to count down the days ‘till Christmas. Countless hours of games and pages of colouring spent with her children and their children.  Countless family dinners and home baked goodies. The greatest gift of all she gave with loving caring hands….the 25 years of teaching. She held their hands and guided them as she did her own family. The hands of a Mother, Wife, Grandma, Daughter and Teacher.  We are all blessed to have been touched by those hands.”

Please join us for Mom’s service Saturday, November 29 at 11:00 am at St. Peter’s Anglican Church.
