Mom was raised in Oxbow, SK and received her education in Oxbow as well and was married in 1947 to Frank. The family moved to Halbrite, SK in 1962. Mom loved the outdoors, her and Dad spent many hours on long walks in the Badlands. She loved to pick Saskatoons each summer and grew gardens until she was into her late 80's. She was a talented painted and has left her family with many oil and water color paintings. She also loved nature and animals, large or small. Her and Dad collected many animals in need over the years. There were always pets in the house. All were there because they needed a home or helping hand. The last of her pets was her beloved "Baby" her cat that was her comfort and companion in her later years.
Mom moved to Crocus Plains Villa in June of last year. She missed her home, her yard and all the flowers she grew and enjoyed there. Crocus Plains welcomed her into her new home and gave her comfort and care until her passing on April 6, 2018. The family wishes to thank Crocus Plains staff for all their understanding and compassion.
A Private Family Graveside Service will be held at Halbrite Cemetery, Halbrite, SK.
