Cherished Noni and Oma of 13. Bis-Noni to her first and second, new arrivals Alexander and Audra. Predeceased by her parents John and Zoli. Sister of Norman (Geraldine) and Richard (Bonnie). Survived by many nieces and nephews.

She was blessed to have had numerous family members visit while palliative, along with the caring staff of the F.J. Davey Home who had been her extended family prior to and especially during these difficult times; always there to ensure she never felt alone between family visits. The family is forever grateful for their kindness and the sincere care.
