Passed away peacefully on December 9, 2006 in her 98th year. She was born in London, England on September 18, 1909.
She was predeceased by her first husband, Laurie Tester, and her second husband, Sid Butterfield. Her twin sister, Margaret, also predeceased her.
She was loved and will be missed by her two daughters, Josie Holmsborg and Erica Bent along with their husbands, Kai and Keith.
She will be fondly remembered by her four grandchildren, Mark Holmsborg, Kirsten Brandreth, Paul and Shaun MacNeill. She also leaves behind eight great-grandchildren.
After many years of failing health, we do not mourn her death but we celebrate her life. A private family service will be held at a later date.
Donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
Special thanks to the staff at the Bradley Center for their care and compassion.
