Mom was an amazing seamstress (self taught), she made beautiful quilts. She loved to bake and worked at Guysco Bakery in Canso for many years. She was a well-respected member of her community, a member of the St Anne's Society, The Ladies Auxiliary of the Little Dover Vol Fire Dept and one of the oldest and original members of the Shamrock Club, Canso. Mom enjoyed a game of cards and bingo, but most of all she loved spending time with her family and friends. She cherished every visit and phone call; it brightened her day. Mom was a woman of deep faith and attended mass weekly. She will be missed so much.
Our family would like to thank the staff of the Milford Haven Nursing Home, Guysborough, Mom spent two and a half years there and they treated her like royalty, she was referred to as the "Queen Mom".
