  1. Mom, you did an amazing job, raising six children, under difficult circumstances. You also played a large role in raising your grandchildren and great grandchildren.
    Rest In Peace.

  2. Grandma, a lot of my favorite memories are of spending the summers with you in Wasaga. You certainly weren’t the most typical ” granny”. One of a kind. Glad you are reunited with your family and friends.
    Love Nicky.

  3. Summers with Grandma were a blast. Beachcombing, hunting for bargains at the flea market, going to the beach and eating toasted tomato sandwiches (usually a little burnt, just the way she liked them!). Thanks for the memories. You are dearly missed.

  4. We’re all going to be missing you Mom/Grandma. Thanks for being one of the “All time Greatest” Moms.
    Love you,
    Ray, Lilian, Sean and Angela.

  5. Growing up, I always looked forward to spending time with you in Wasaga Beach. I’ll miss our flea market adventures, our Scrabble games and all the times you would sneak me a treat and tell me to not tell my parents. I’ll miss your stubbornness, your independence and your love for your family. Stay awesome Grandma.


  6. Grandma, your strength, generosity, words of wisdom and scrabble skills are things I will miss most. You had a big influence on the person I am today and helped inspire my daughters to be the wonderful young women they are as well. Forever grateful and will love you always.

  7. You were a wonderful Grandma. I have many fond memories of visits in Wasaga beach and you coming to babysit us at our house. I remember lots of sweets, brisk walks, watching Columbo and touring many model homes.
    I’m so glad you got to meet my son, Will, who you described as the fattest baby you had ever seen.
    I love you and will miss you.
