Our Mom had a great love for all animals, especially dogs, cats and horses. She was an excellent baker and cook and always had yummy treats and delicious meals for everyone to enjoy. She loved going for walks and to the beach to get rocks and shells and making beautiful framed pictures with them. She planted many pear and apple trees, from seeds, for her children.
We will cherish those bountiful trees forever. Mom, we love you so much for all the unconditional love, care, and kindness you gave us. Thank you for being the best mother in the world , and never asking for anything in return.
She worked at the Marysville Cotton Mill, as a young lady, and told us many stories of her time there.
We would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the Campbellton Regional Hospital, for the excellent care she was given while she was a patient there.
