Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Ken & Nancy and all your families, We are so sorry for your loss...no matter one’s age, it is never easy to lose a cherished family member. Your mom was always as sharp as a tack and one of the most upbeat people we had the pleasure of having in our lives. We as well remember many good times with the rest of the family, chilling on the deck, and sharing many stories from those good old days! Her sense of humour was infectious and this is evidenced by the fact that it has spread through the whole rest of the family. I, personally, experienced my very first Christmas eve “dip” at Aunty Jean’s house and I remember being quite bewildered at this strange tradition! Over the years, it became something we very much looked forward to, along with many other family dinners over the years...it was always nip and tuck as to who between your mom and our dad would be the last to finish the meal. Both of them sure liked to make sure their food was very well chewed! We are going to miss her very much but she is sure an example of a life well lived. Our sincerest condolences to you all. Love & prayers, Bill, Joni, Jordan and Stefanie (Mark) - Posted by: Joni and Bill Ingram (Nephew and Niece in law) on: May 18, 2020

Dear Nancy and Ken and families, I am so sorry for you loss, but I feel that Mom is right now playing the heavenly organ and having a wonderful sing along with all the family members who have gone before, or perhaps just having a good game of cards with Dad and brother Stan and Billie. What fun we had around the kitchen table, or just spending time enjoying the amazing backyard and view of the Assiniboine River. Such wonderful memories..... MY love and deepest sympathy to you all.
