Mom was born on August 22, 1934 and was raised on the family farm near St. Jean Baptiste. She was a hard worker at an early age, helping out on the farm and always looking after her siblings. She went on to graduate from Marvel Beauty School and opened her hair salon in Morris. She loved her work and made many life-long friends along the way. Mom had a great sense of humour and a very kind heart. At home our door was always open and she welcomed everyone with a smile and her generosity. She was always busy whether it was gardening, crocheting, playing cards, reading, but mostly she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren.
Mom will be greatly missed by countless friends and family members who were blessed to know and love her.
We would like to thank Dr Fraser and the staff at Red River Valley Lodge for the kindness and care they gave her over the years.
A private service will be held at a later date.
