She was a Mother, a wife, and a friend to many. She was a soldier, and a solider’s wife. She lost her battle with this terrible foe on November 10, 2017. She was a fighter and protector all of her life. She was at her happiest when she was in service to others. She was strong in her faith and loved her friends and family fiercely. She is pictured here with a Blanket of Valour, created for her by quiltsofvalour.ca a group that recognizes Canadian veterans with these quilts. Photo credit Heather Taras Vanderveer.
