Mom was a big Canucks fan; she watched them regularly and often said that when she leaves the room they score so she left often. She enjoyed bowling which is where she won our very first T.V. set. She also enjoyed the occasional round of golf.
Mom had numerous nieces and nephews and really loved her grandchildren dearly. She took care of her sons their whole lives. She really was one of a kind. Dad’s been waiting for you, you can rest now.
There will be no formal service by request.
