Mom was an incredible woman, who was kind, warm, caring, loving and welcoming. She was a wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandma and friend to all. She devoted her life to her family. She loved her home with the beautiful gardens that kept her busy, she was a hard worker. Mom was faith-filled and believed in God. When asked about her age, she would say, "We do not know the hour or the day, God has a plan for each of us." May she rest in peace with the Lord. Her listening ear and beautiful smile will always be remembered, along with her strength and wisdom.
We would like to thank all the nurses and doctors who cared for Mom on the 8th floor at Grand River Hospital and to the caring and compassionate nurses and staff at Innisfree House, who took such good care of mom.
