Our Mother was born and raised in Toronto. She was the youngest of 4 children. Raised in a house of Scottish immigrants, a cup of tea was always the offer to every visitor. The house was always full of relatives coming and going. Before and during WWII, she worked at General Electric. After a seven-year courtship, she married and settled in Dresden, ON as owner/operators of a small business. Our parents spent the rest of their married life working together. Family brought them back to Toronto.
Mom spent every summer with us kids at our cottage enjoying the beach, swimming and adventures. She loved her winters in Fort Myers, Florida with Dad. Even after all those sunny days at Wasaga Beach, she still always loved the sun.
In their later years Mom and Dad purchased a 100-year-old hobby farm and spent their summers restoring it. The grandchildren always enjoyed visiting Grandma at the farm and being spoilt with candy from the special drawer.
Her greatest pleasure was her family. She loved to laugh and always enjoyed having the grandchildren & great-grandchildren around.
She will be dearly missed.
Due to the limitations still in place surrounding COVID-19, the Family will hold a Celebration of Life during the summer.
Info: There will be a 1 hour visitation from 12:00-1:00 with the funeral service starting at 1:00 There is a strict 25 person limit at the funeral home due to Covid. We ask that all guests please wear a mask.
