Mom and dad went on many adventures, travelling throughout Canada and the United States as well as winters in Florida with the kids always in tow. An avid volunteer, mom was a lifelong member of the St. Williams Women’s Institute as well as the church. Following the loss of dad, she continued to pursue her love of travel as she journeyed all over the world, managing to visit every continent in her lifetime. She made lifelong friends wherever she went. Mom found joy in life and remained positive through many obstacles. She will be dearly missed by her family. A Funeral Service will be held on Monday March 16, 2020 at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 155 Colborne St., Simcoe, at 11am. Pastor Dan Abraham officiating. As expressions of sympathy the family would appreciate donations to the ALS Society or St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. We would like to thank everyone who helped her on her final journey. To all her care workers from CCAC, Ontario March of Dimes, Stedman Outreach and the ALS Society – thank you. As with all her travels, many of you became friends that she spoke of fondly. We would also like to thank our many aunts and uncles who provided support to her and continue to provide support to us. Your help allowed her to live her life on her terms.
