Mom grew up and attended school in the Steelman and Lampman area, and married Dad on October 3, 1955. She was a busy stay-at-home mom and an excellent cook. We each had our favourites and her treasured recipes have been passed down to all the family. In her limited spare time, mom liked to sew, crochet and bake. She always planted a large garden and spent hours canning, and even drove the combine and grain truck until the farm auction in 1999. Throughout the years, she enjoyed curling and dancing.
Mom left us with lifelong memories, strong values and special traditions. Thank you mom for all you have given us. You are loved forever and will be missed.
