Great Grandmother, Aunt and Friend to many.

Our mother was very proud to be a sergeant in the army of the 49th Regiment for 15 years. She always told us these were the best years of her life. Mom was a true sergeant until her last days, and she loved having happy hour with her late husband Ron and her daughters and neighbors and her best friend Doris Yakich. She enjoyed the outdoors and her cabins at Desbarats Lake and Bridgeland Lake. She loved kids and animals, but only on her own terms. Her feisty spirit will be missed by all.

Due to current restrictions, there will be a graveside service in Desbarats in the Spring, details to follow.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations to A.R.C.H. or the Humane Society would be greatly appreciated by the family.

Arrangements entrusted to Arthur Funeral Home – Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St. E., 705-759-2522) Please visit to leave a message of condolence as a keepsake for the family.
