Mom was born in Winnipeg on August 8, 1939 and was the oldest of 5 children. Her childhood was spent in Oakpoint, MB before the family moved back to Winnipeg.
Mom met dad and they were married on January 31, 1964. Mom worked at Scott National in Winnipeg until they purchased the Woodlands General Store in 1972. They ran the store and post office until they sold in 1979. She continued to be postmaster and they built the current building that the post office is still in today. Mom retired from Canada Post in 2002.
Mom enjoyed watching her grandchildren at their various sports. She loved painting and sketching, she was always looking for pictures that she could do a painting of. We have many of her paintings that she did that we will cherish forever. She had many other hobbies, was a member of the community hall and bingo committee.
We would like to thank all the staff that cared for mom during her stay at Teulon Hunter Memorial Hospital and Ken Loehmer for all his help and guidance.
