Daughter of the late Walter (Wally) and Christine Hinds. She is survived by her children, Paul, Penelope, and David; and her grandchildren, Karen, Jason, Sebastian and Alex.
Born in Winnipeg on July 27, 1942, she moved to Montreal with her family as a teenager. She became a nurse at the Royal Victoria Hospital. After raising her children, her desire to care for others led her to a second career as a priest with the Montreal diocese. She moved to Victoria to be close to her son and his family. A Celebration of Life will be held in Victoria in 2023.
