Mom and dad spent time in the Cache Creek, Fort McMurray, Edmonton, Lake Manitoba and Riverton.
Mom was very happy to reconnect with her biological mother and siblings in the late 80’s.
Mom enjoyed the majority of her retirement years in Vancouver, B.C. living close by her son David.
Flowers gratefully declined. Mom will be privately laid to rest alongside her husband Einar in Riverton Cemetery.
Rest in Peace mom.
