later settled in Kelowna, B.C., where they raised two boys, Rick and Nick. Tiny, Dick and their youngest son, Nick,

relocated to Abbotsford, B.C., in 1975, where she remained

until her death. She was

predeceased by her husband of 50 years, Dick Goyette in 1998, her brother Sam (Sonny), and sister Dorothy (Babs). She is survived by her sons, Rick (Candice) of Kelowna, B.C., and Nick of Abbotsford B.C. Tiny also leaves behind 3 loving grandchildren, Alexis, Jason, and Brayden, and one special great-granddaughter, Mikayla Madelaine Rose.
