Mom was born in the Rogers District, near Mossbank, where she grew up and attended school. She met and married George in 1940. They lived on and farmed the homestead farm west of Mossbank until 1965, when they moved to Maple Creek. Mom worked in the hospital here then moved to the Nursing Lodge where she completed her working life at the age of 65. Mom truly enjoyed retirement life, she stayed very active with card games, shuffleboard, potluck suppers and loved the old time dances. The senior center was a very important place in her life and is where she met many wonderful friends. Mom liked to knit, crochet, embroidery and do jig saw puzzles; in her younger years she was an avid sewer. She very much liked family gatherings, with all the turmoil and noise they bring, until her later years when quiet family dinners were her enjoyment. For the past seven years mom lived in South View Manor and was part of the family there, she had many great memories from various programs and activities. We all will miss you mom!
