Soon after, she met John and got married a year later in Kelowna. They bought their first home in Maple Ridge and settled there for the next 48 years. She became a dedicated homemaker who loved and cared for her two daughters. They made many close friends through St. Patrick’s school, skating and community organizations. She enjoyed making personalized cakes, crafts, and was well-known for her beautiful handmade cards. She was a devoted and enthusiastic wife, mother, nana and friend. She courageously battled asthma her whole life. Her legacy will be her example of kindness and positivity.
“And He will raise you up on eagle’s wings...
and hold you in the palm of his hand.”
