Flora was greatly admired for her skills in dress making (bridal), knitting and crocheting. Gardening and bird watching were some of her outdoor pleasures and on occasion sitting on her front porch with a beer. She also loved her trips to the cottage every summer in Port Severn, waiting for a good storm to happen over the lake. One of her other pleasures was watching cooking shows, especially one named “Lidia”. Over the years she had two four legged friends, Bo-Jo and Vanessa. Best known at the nursing home as the puzzle lady for all the many puzzles she made with family.
A sincere thank you to staff on 3 east at Riverview Gardens for their care and compassion over the last three years. Donations to Diabetes Canada or the charity of your choice are appreciated. A private family service will be held at a later date. Cremation has taken place as per Flora’s wishes.
