August 29, 1922 – February 12, 2023

Mom passed peacefully on Sunday, February 12 at Teulon Memorial Hospital where she had stayed since September 15, 2022. She leaves behind her two sons Danny and Lockie, daughter-in-law Diana (Mallon)McLean, son-in-law Ron Unger, eight grandchildren and 12 great -grandchildren. She was predeceased by the accidental death of her son, Ian, in 1975, her husband, Alex, in 2001 and her daughter, Heather, in 2021.
Mom met the love of her life, Alex, (Dad) and waited for him while he served overseas for four years in the Second World War. Upon his return from War's end, they married on March 23, 1946. Mom always said for that special day, it was beautiful and sunny, with no snow on the ground. They were soul mates and inseparable. They would old time dance in our small house with no music playing and us kids would just wonder what was going on.
Mom was born in Stonewall on 3rd St. West and lived her whole life on that same street. She was the youngest daughter of Paul Cameron and Jessie Kennedy (Welsh). Her's was a childhood of a different era. One of horseback riding without saddles and horse and wagon. Her's was a story of a loving, caring family. Her parents homesteaded in Stonewall before it was a Town and she was so proud of her Pioneer-like heritage.
She was a proud "Scot" and this was reinforced last year when Diana convinced her to have her DNA tested with the result being 98% pure Scottish and 2% Viking! Mom had a network of wonderful friends and neighbours who all shared in her story. This enriched her life and helped her stay happy and independent in her own house until June of last year. She then moved in with Diana and I and we were able to care for her until three days before her 100th birthday.
Visitors to Mom's home could never leave without her giving them a gift. Her passion was petit point in her early years, which was appreciated by many throughout the country. Her love of knitting included supplying "everyone" with mitts, togues, socks, scarfs, and slippers. In later years, her dish cloths were given to so very many family members, friends, and neighbours.
The family would like to thank her caring neighbours, the many home care workers, and the staff at Stonewall hospital. A HUGE thank you though goes to the amazing and caring staff at Teulon Hunter Memorial Hospital!
Mom, we are so very grateful for having you in our lives and we are so very fortunate to have had you with us for so very long!
A Celebration of Life is planned for Sunday, February 26 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Stonewall Heritage Arts Centre. In lieu of flowers, a contribution to the South West District Palliative Care would be appreciated.
