We are all going to miss her. She was always there for those who needed her. Very generous and heartfelt, even to strangers. Gave to many charities. Loved all her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and her 4 granddogs: Si, Ted, Turbo, and Lilly. Enjoyed seeing them all. She herself had a dog "Cinder" as her companion for many years. She loved her Cinder. She loved music and playing bingo.
She had a long life, almost 95 years. She was tired. It's hard to say Good Bye... but we will meet again when God calls. She was a member of St John's Catholic Church and she will be buried in the Gate of Heaven Cemetery by the hospital.
