She was always a willing participant in all activities, although not as willing to lose. She loved going to camp surrounded by her grandchildren playing cards and jumping in the lake at 3 AM after a sauna. Florida life as a snowbird in Country Park for more than 20 years filled her life ,including her six-handed Euchre friends.
Always willing to accompany her kids to events where she watched hockey/ figure skating and Gayle eating at the buffet. . Happy to go cross country skiing with TT, walking with kids, she was always active and keeping busy. Grandkids and Great -grandkids have many wonderful memories of serpent river /gazebo gatherings and swimming in the river.
Family reunions in Serpent River hold a special place in everyone’s heart.
Her last years saw her memory decline but her humour and wit remained until the end.
Cremation has occurred. Family memorial at camp on a later date.
