The Funeral Service will be at Bethany Manor Fellowship Center ( 110 Laronge Road, Saskatoon) on Friday, July 6th, at 2:00 p.m. Interment to follow at Woodlawn Cemetery. The family extends their heartfelt gratitude to her second family, the caregivers at Bethany Villa, and to Seniors First Home Care for their compassion and support which allowed her to remain in her home as was her final wish.
