Mark & I are so sad to know that your mother is no longer with us. We have so many wonderful memories of time spent with her. Our summers were certainly a lot more entertaining with your mother next door which meant all of her family became a part of ours. Danielle & Jacqueline loved all the fun times they had at “Mrs. Perry’s”. We so looked forward to her coming every summer. Please know that all of your family is in our thoughts & prayers.

Karen and Linda… I was deeply saddened to read of your Mom’s passing. Life has a funny way of taking us along many different paths. When visiting our friend at Glenbrook Lodge I was very fortunate to meet and share some happy visits with your mom as well. She was a true delight and I am so glad to have gotten to know her … if only a little. You both seemed like such devoted daughters and I know you consider yourselves very lucky to have had her in your life for so long but I know as well your hearts are broken and sad. May all of your cherished, happy memories of your Mom bring comfort to you at this time. My thoughts are with you both and your families. Stephanie Hewitt

Dear Aunt Sally, ever since I was a little child you always created me with kindness and open arms! Your laughter and smile were contagious! I will miss you, and your supportive words! Love and God Bless, Anthony

Linda and family so very sorry to hear of your beautiful mom’s. passing Condolences to you and your family

Tony and family: So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. She lived a long life and left you with lots of memories to cherish. May she rest in -peace.

The last of the “PUBMAGS”. A lesson to the rest of us about what true friendship was all about. Through thick and thin they stuck together. I will always remember the music and laughter that filled our house on Empire Avenue every New Years Eve and taking my Mom to visit at the house in Long Pond every summer. With very fond and happy memories.

Linda and family ,
We were just informed of your moms passing and the rush of memories of all those summers that she “attended “ the concerts the girls put off came rushing back ❤️God bless her ,she certainly was a beautiful independent lady and I will cherish the memories forever . How fitting that one so precious would pass during the Easter season May she rise in glory . The days ahead will certainly be filled with sadness but please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear sweet ‘Aunt Sally’. You had a life well lived and were loved by all. How your little sister worried about you – you are now at peace. You are greatly missed by family in Ottawa….never to be forgotten.
They are playing your song !
With love to all on the rock from the mainlanders .

Condolences on the loss of your mother and grandmother. Thinking of you all during this difficult time xo

Our condolences to the family.
Or thoughts and prayers are with you.
