Our mother died as she had lived – very gently and peacefully. Although we are so very saddened by her leaving, we are so blessed in knowing she gently fell asleep and quietly went to be with her Joe.
She is predeceased by her loving husband, Joe, her son Peter, her brother Jack. She will be ever remembered by her children: Martha (Phyll), Caroline (Rob), Joe (Terri), John and Jim (Allison). She loved and will be ever remembered by her grandchildren Will, Tyler, Julia, Christine, Adam, and Billy-Jim and her great grandchildren Grant, Claire, Desmond, and Deidra.
Our mother was a gentle, kind lady who lived her life with great dignity and grace with a welcoming smile for everyone she met. Our dear, sweet mother loved her weekly get togethers with her “girls” club, attending craft fairs, travelling to sunny climates, found great joy in shopping, and was the happiest when taking care of her home and her family. Her husband and her children were the joys of her life. We will miss her beautiful smile and her laughter.
Many thanks to all the staff and Dr. O’Shea at Kenny’s Pond Retirement Home. She was so well loved and cared for especially by the 2nd floor staff. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your caring and devotion to ensure her well being and happiness. She thought the world of you all. We are ever so grateful.
Due to the current COVID situation, a celebration of life will be held at a later date to be determined. Cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers for the celebration, donations can be made to The Gathering Place or a charity of your choice.
We miss you mom but we are ever comforted in knowing you are with dad. Farewell, God speed on your journey to your new home. We will meet again.
