The Monarch Butterfly became Mom’s passion.  She was active with others in their survival, planting, encouraging involvement and even helping to band them for tracking.  We will miss her but she will be in our hearts forever.  A service to honour the life of Mom will be held on Tuesday March 18, 2014 at MacCoubrey Funeral Home Limited, 30 King Street E.
