Our mother was a strong willed individual who took every opportunity to enjoy her life. She was an amazing mother, the rock of all our family. She enjoyed cooking, visiting with friends and a good game of cards at the cottage. Her motto was simple, “Live every day to the fullest and no matter what happens in life, always think positive”. Our mother, our gem, our greatest loss. Mommy and Papa (Mr. F) you’re together once again.
