It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our Mum while visiting in Ottawa for Christmas, she will be sadly missed by all of her family and friends near and far.
She immigrated with her husband Tony to Montreal Quebec from Lancashire England back in the mid 1950’s where she raised her family. It was our father’s work at Air Canada, that brought her to Richmond and then finally on to White Rock.
We would love to recognize some of her favourite pastimes like playing doubles’ tennis, the local scrabble club, her volunteer work delivering flowers for the church and her passion for gardening.
