Mom loved the home her and Dad made for their family. Taking care of all of us brought her joy. We were her greatest treasure.
She loved baking and cooking, everything was always homemade. Many people have eaten at her table and all were welcome.
We're all so blessed that God chose her for us. We would like to thank the staff of the Jordan LifeCare Centre for their kindness and support.
There will be a private family service. Interment will be in Kinnear Settlement Cemetery. Arrangements are in the care of Salisbury Funeral Home, 3350 Route 106 (372-4800).
If so desired, donations to the Havelock Baptist Church Building Fund, the Jordan LifeCare Centre or the Kinnear Settlement Cemetery would be appreciated by the family.
