Mum was born on May 6th, 1942 in East Angus, Quebec, and moved to BC at a young age. She spent her working years in the food industry in Chilliwack working in or managing several businesses including Geordies Drive-in, Smitty’s Pancake House, Younies Restaurant, The Birchwood and Lynnwood Retirement Residences, and also the Pointa Vista Cafe in which she owned and operated. Mum loved to play cards and enjoyed her many trips to the casino, but by far her greatest joy in life came from spending time with her children, grandchildren, family, and friends. No service by request at this time. In Lieu of flowers donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. or charity of your choice would be appreciated. ~ You will forever be in our hearts ~ McLean’s, (604)847-3477
