January 17, 1929 – April 22, 2017
Raising her arms up so that the Angels could take her to Paradise, Mom passed away peacefully after an eleven month fight. Predeceased by her husband Joseph (1994) and young son in law Douglas Kirby (2014). She leaves behind a new great granddaughter Stevie Jaye, with her grandson Scott (Denise); grandsons Steven (Kelly), Evan, special granddaughter Lise, as well as, her own children, Stephanie (Kirby), MaryJo and Michael. Pete will keep a place for her at Sunday dinners and her neighbours Steve, Michelle, Andrew, Matthew, Meagan and Michael Laforet were her treasured second family. Mom worked hard at Dominion Forge, Windsor Answering Service, CKLW, CBET-TV9, and finally CBC. After retirement she traveled but preferred to be home on the golf course 3-4 times a week with her golf buddies. A very heartfelt thank you to the caring staff at Chateau Park Long Term Care for making her stay comfortable, albeit too short. On this Earth Day, we ask that you plant some pretty pink flowers in her memory. Visiting on Tuesday from 4-7 p.m. at Families First 3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor, 519-969-5841.
