In 1987 Dad retired and Mom and Dad moved to Saskatoon, where they remained.
Mom was a busy lady, who had a passion for life and her family. She was always smiling, had tea ready to go, and had an open door policy for everyone. She truly loved her life. She loved holidaying with her family, exploring many places. She loved sewing, curling and going ghost hunting with her sisters. She was an avid reader and enjoyed writing her own book about how her family came from Nova Scotia to Homestead in Saskatchewan. She also enjoyed cooking and baking, especially bread, cinnamon rolls and baking powder biscuits.
She especially loved to dance with dad!
