Chris was known as a generous, gentle soul with a delightful sense of humour. She was a role model to her children, a seamstress, gardener and handy with a hammer and saw. There weren’t too many things she couldn’t do, fix or renovate. We will miss her wise advice.

Memorial contributions to the CNIB, Ontario Finnish Resthome Association or the FJ Davey Home would be appreciated.
Special thanks to the staff of both the Ontario Finnish Resthome and the FJ Davey Home for their outstanding kindness, professional and respectful care of our mother. You have all made her last years content and comfortable and we knew she was in capable caring hands.
