After dad passed away in 2004, mom moved to Medicine Hat to the Good Samaritan Society and lived there from 2004 – 2017. We would like to thank Brenda, Wanda, and Joanne for taking such good care of her while she was living down stairs. In February of 2017 mom moved to South Country Village and we would also like to thank the staff there for taking care of her. Special thanks to Linda for coming and doing mom’s hair. Mom was a Sunday school teacher for many years and some of her favorite pastimes were watching baseball, crocheting, knitting, reading, and doing crossword puzzles. Mom always had a smile on her face and we will miss her very much.
