Her family would like to thank the ICU and Palliative Care Staff at Lion’s Gate Hospital. We would also like to thank the wonderful care Mom received from the homecare staff and nurses in Haines Junction, especially Grace Noel and Dr. Sally MacDonald in Whitehorse.

Those who knew her well will cherish all the memories and remember her for her great spirit, independence and courage.

She moved to the Yukon in 1980 and fell in love. Haines Junction was her home. Interment will take place in Haines Junction in July.
