Everything Mum & Dad did in life was for the sake of their children, including emigrating to Calgary in 1957. For all they did we will be eternally grateful. Mum was a WW11 veteran of the Women’s Royal Navy and lived in both Liverpool and Norwich before coming to Canada. She lived and worked in Calgary and retired to Parksville. She was active on Vancouver Island in lawn & carpet bowling and volunteer work including hospice and Parksville SOS. She loved seeing her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and vacationing on Maui, where some of her ashes will be spread. She will be missed by so many!!!
Cremation. A service will be held at a later date.
