Mom could be a force to be reckoned with, with a keen wit and a sharp tongue she always had a helping hand and a story to tell. . While working at various jobs including cooking in a logging camp, delivering the rural mail and school bus driving she met many lifelong friends. She took great pleasure in travelling, be it near or far, especially going to Ontario to visit her Great Grandsons, her pride and joy. You will be missed.
