First landing in Uclulet, then settling in Campbell River, BC until the passing of her beloved Delphis.

She loved and valued her family and friends. A hard worker, homemaker, Momma Bear, amazing mother and friend to all who knew her. She could be counted on for love, support, strength and conviction. Spending many hours patiently tending to family and friends. We have all been blessed by her beautiful love and bright smile. To the end, on the move, walking 3 miles a day, playful, warm, kind & determined.
