Mom was very active in the community. Her church was very important to her and she was the U.C.W. president for many ears, choir member, social convener and the “go to” person for many church activities. She was a dedicated volunteer with the Thrift Store, Museum and Olive Branch Dinners, a founding member of Friendship House, a “Tops” member, a line dancer and a floor curler. She loved the “Jammers”, Minter Gardens, senior bus trips and was a cook and baker extraordinaire.
Mom loved life and lived it to the fullest. Above all Mom loved her family and cherished her time with family and friends. She will be greatly missed but we are comforted by all the precious memories she left us with. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, January 3, 2015 at 1:30 pm at the Agassiz United Church, 6860 Lougheed Highway. If friends so desire it was Mom’s wishes that donations be made to the Agassiz United Church.
