Mom enjoyed playing her keyboard organ for many years, gardening, reading, needlepoints, quilting, puzzles, and having her family around her. Lots of family get togethers over the years, so many laughs and great memories. In past years mom was a bookkeeper at  Wheels Motor Inn and Ford Equipment in Chatham and so enjoyed her work there. We know Dad and “Jesse” will take good care of our mom. They are all together now and we miss them all so very much. Special Thanks to Dr. Bailey, staff at CKHA, neighbours and Rev. Paul McPhail for his prayers for our Mom. At Mom’s request there will be no visitation and cremation has taken place. A private family memorial will take place at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to DENNING’S OF CHATHAM (519-352-2390). Donations to the Alzheimer Society, Chatham Women’s Shelter or the CK Animal Rescue would be greatly appreciated with thanks.
