Mom was blessed with 24 grandchildren, 58 great grandchildren, 9 great great grandchildren, and still growing. There were also many special friends she treated just like family.

An avid and tireless talented knitter and crocheter. It’s believed mom had knitted baby blankets and or afghans for all grand, great, great great grandchildren and numerous other family and friends.

Family and friends were a very important part of her life.

The family would like to thank the staff at Ts”I”ts”uwatul” Lelum assisted living (Duncan), staff at Cowichan District Hospital for their compassionate care for both mom and family during her recent stay and Dr. Blackburn and staff.
