A beautiful soul passed peacefully away today with her family around her.
Mom was predeceased by her husbands Ben Strickland and Bill Thistle.
She leaves behind with loving memories her children Rhonda (Sherrif) Stenhouse, Linda (Jim) Bartlett, Liz (Tom) Anderson, Ben Strickland, Patrick (Judy) Strickland, Madonna (Ambrose) Gale. Her adored grandchildren and great grandchildren and special ‘daughter’ Linda McDonald.
A survivor of the Knights of Columbus fire, Mom faced every challenge in life with a smile and optimism, including the past weeks. Her great sense of humour and love of chocolate will be remembered by everyone who knew her.
We would like to thank the wonderful staff (Mom’s other family) at Cambridge Estates, also Loralee, Dr. Singleton, Natasha, Darlene and her friend Nina for their loving care of mom and all of us during this sad time.
Mom’s door was always open to anyone in need and she shared what she had with everyone her whole life.
In Memory of Mom, please do something kind for someone who needs it.
Mom has been cremated and a private family burial has taken place.
Because the love of a mother starts long before birth…it will last long after death.
