Throughout her courageous battle with cancer, the family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the following medical teams: Dr. Mercier and the sincerest secretaries at her office, the entire Chemo Unit team at Western Health. Your team went truly over and beyond to provide her with the utmost care throughout the duration of her illness. Lastly, to the palliative care team. You not only provided her with excellent care in such a compassionate way in her final days, you also provided our family a welcoming home and peace of mind during these past several weeks. All of you are truly hand-picked angels here on earth. Special thanks as well to Rev. Effie Organ and to the clergy at Western Health: Rev. Russell and Rev. Loder for their visits, bedside prayers and for guiding her on her journey. We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone for the many phone calls, messages of condolences and to all those who sent along food.
In keeping with her wishes, a private (immediate family only) viewing will take place on Wednesday, January 6th at 2pm at St. James Anglican Church, Lark Harbour. A private family service will also take place that same evening at 7pm, followed by a private funeral service on Thursday, January 7th at 2pm, officiated by Reverend Effie Organ. In keeping with Covid regulations, the family service and funeral service will be by invitation only. The interment will follow at St. James Anglican Cemetery. As expressions of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. James Memorial Fund.
Rest In Peace our beautiful angel. You will be missed beyond measure.
