She married Roy at Duncan United Church in 1955 and was an active member there for 60 years. She especially enjoyed all the events and planning with the Get Together’s group. She will always be remembered for her smile that lit up her eyes and her love of cooking and baking, especially Apple Pie.
Special Thanks to the years of wonderful care by the staff of Chemainus Health Care Center and Dr Manhas. A family gathering is hoped to be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Duncan Hospice Society.
