Passed away peacefully at Extendicare, Haliburton on Sunday, December 29, 2019, at the age of 85.

Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to our loving mother, grandmother, great and great-great grandmother, but we know that she is beside Dad (2004), brother Bern (2019), and grandson Greg (2001), along with Mom’s brothers and sister who are waiting on the other side to help her through the next journey of her life.

She leaves behind her children Ina (Rick-2018), Velda, Bern (2019), Laverne (Pam), Terry (Carrie). Loving grandmother of 11 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, plus two in the near future and also two great-great grandchildren. As well as her sister Jane, five sister-in-laws, one brother-in-law and many nieces and nephews.

We would like to send a special thank you out to all of mom’s friends that have been there for her through the good and the bad, as well as all the care givers at Extendicare and Dr. Stevenson that became her second family for all the love and care she received.
