Our mom had many friends and was well respected and loved. Mom began her life's adventure as a school teacher, worked at M.T.S in Russell, MB; was a switchboard operator at Selkirk Mental Health Centre; and also worked as a Home Advisor with the Province of Manitoba retiring in 1993. First and dearest to her heart was being a full time mother and homemaker.

We would like to thank everyone who helped care for mom over the years to achieve a rewarding life of 91 years and 8 months.
