Nettie continued to live alone in the house in Saskatoon where we grew up, then Ilarian Residence in 2012 and finally Luther Care Home in 2014. She had a green thumb, nurturing her beautiful flowers and vegetable garden. She also worked for a time at Kilburn Hall in Saskatoon.

Nettie was loved by many, particularly with relatives, long term neighbors and those with whom she had deep rooted friendships. Many thanks to the nurses and staff at Luther Special Care Home for their care and compassion. Nettie was a loving wife, mother and grand mother. She will be sadly missed.
