We are very sorry to hear of the sudden passing of your Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. We shall always remember her laugh, her delicious cinnamon buns and bread, her knowledge of cards (so many games) and her competitiveness in cards and her always classy appearance. She always dressed so colorfully and her jewellery always matched her outfits. When we think of your Mother, these are the things we remember the most. So sorry for your loss. Know that we care and that we shall miss her at your family events.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Your mother was a very dear person.My thoughts are with you all. She lived close to us when I was still at home and when they moved to town I lived close to her as well for a while. I remember the Willow Range dances and picnics that My Mom and her were part of. God bless you all. Bernice

From: Vivian & Randy Strate
Relation: Friend

There are no words that can take the pain away when you lose a parent. Each memory will now be held a little closer to your heart. Your mom was a very special person in my life. I have many memories of days spent with everyone at the farm and she treated just like one of her own. She shared many laughs and tears with my mom over the years and I’m sure they are laughing together again!
