Her pride and joy were her eight grandchildren, eighteen great grandchildren and one great great grandchild. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by husband Fleming (2002); infant sister Grace and brothers Ted, Stan and Jack.
Known for her loving heart, her greatest joys were family gatherings, the outdoors, playing cards, cooking, knitting, drives in the country and watching her family play sports.
