Anyone who knew mom knew she liked bingo and would go faithfully every Sunday night with her sister Joan. You didn’t mess with mom’s bingo, in fact family events were planned around it. She also took great pride in her home, yard, flower gardens and mowing the lawn down to the rocks. You always knew when she was mowing because the dust and rocks would be flying.
She loved her family with a passion and enjoyed spending time doing puzzles and watching family feud and price is right with her daughters. She was quick witted and sharp minded and always had a clever comeback and those who knew her knew how much enjoyment she got out of scaring her daughters right down to her final days.
By request there will be no service at this time with private burial at a later date. Cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lung Association of Nova Scotia.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to VON and the Palliative Care team for helping and assisting us in keeping mom comfortable at home where she wanted to be.
