A celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Mom’s family was her greatest joy. She was a very supportive wife, mother and grandmother. Mom enjoyed family gatherings and with her competitive spirit was able to teach her grandchildren a thing or two about crokinole and chinese checkers. She loved to listen to country music and going to dances in her younger days. Gardening was also one of her favourite pastimes. Mom will be sadly missed by all her family and friends and leaves behind many fond memories. Henderson’s Funeral Home in care of arrangements.
