We will remember Mom as the center of a busy home, a wonderful example of hospitality and service as she baked, cooked, cleaned and sewed. Her dedication to God and her church shone through everything she did. Towards the end of her life she dealt with her health problems without complaint and her attitude of gratitude to her Heavenly Father and to her family were evident to the end.

Many, many thanks to Dr. Dan MacIntosh, caregiver Babs Stevens, and the Palliative Care Team for their tender loving care. You’re the best!
