She married her husband Bev in Winnipeg. Shortly after the war, they moved to Calgary and then to Lethbridge where they settled and raised a family. Her children remember Miranda as a wonderful cook and a loving mother. She spent her lifetime helping others, first her children and then her husband when he had a heart attack, and later as a volunteer at a senior’s residence. The family sends a special thanks to the staff at Extendicare Fairmont Park.
At Miranda’s request there will be a private family graveside at Mountain View Cemetery at a later date.
