It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of a truly wonderful, gracious and funny lady. To all who were fortunate to have known Mom, her sense of humor was comparable only to the large smiles she would place on your face. She always had time to sit and have a cup of tea and hear of your families.
Mom was born in Stein Valley on 03 January 1942. Left in a snow bank she was raised mainly by her Aunt Nora and Uncle David. From the day she was born she’d had to be a fighter. To have accomplished so very much throughout her life is a testament to her will and determination to have a better life for not only herself but to provide a loving, caring home for her own family. She was not one to give up or back down no matter how great the challenge was.
Mom loved to garden and looked forward to planting her flower beds each spring. Quite often she could be found outdoors working the soil and speaking with passersby about her plants. More often than not Mom’s flowerbeds were the nicest on the block. But no one could come close to Mom’s baking skills. Her homemade bread, pies and black forest cakes could put even the most accomplished baker to shame. And when it was bread she was making, her buckskin bread was everyone’s favourite.
She leaves to mourn, her husband George of 49 years; their oldest son Matyas, and his children Brayden, Cheyenne and Corbin; son George; and daughter Susan, with her husband Christian. Her cat Max and dog Steiner were her constant companions over the years as she dealt with her illness.
Having been born and raised in Lytton she leaves behind her brother Reynold Dick; several Aunts, Uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Fly and soar with the eagles Mom. When we look to the stars, know that we are thinking of you and loving you from here on earth. We love you so very much. You’ll be missed by all who knew and loved you. Be free and at peace, until we see each other again.
