She is also survived by her brothers Roly and Kingsley (Heather), and sister-in-law Kay (brother Frank).

Mom loved her rural roots, her family, camping, boating, cottaging, travel, golfing, X-C skiing, gardening, reading, and birding. Both Mom and Dad were avid birders, building elaborate birdhouses, and caring for many generations of blue birds and purple martins over the years.
Thank you to the wonderful caring staff of The Ottawa General Hospital for their excellent care during her illness, and Windsor Park Retirement Home where she lived for three years prior to her hospitalization.
