August 19, 1936 – February 15, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, sister and friend.
She is survived by her three children, Cindy (Tim), James (Kathleen) and Darlene (Larry), and also by her three loving grandchildren, three great grandchildren, siblings, Gloria (Willie), Leah, Doug and many nieces, nephews, and cousins who she all held close to her heart.
Mom was happiest with her family near and when she was in the garden growing food for everyone to enjoy. The fall was her favorite time of the year as she enjoyed canning and freezing the fruits of her labour to feed the family throughout the year. Friends were always welcomed at her table for a cup of tea and a rousing game of cribbage; or to sample some of the food that she grew and loved to share with all. Mom was happiest to be near family but also missed the many friends she had in Clearwater who she kept in touch with by telephone faithfully. She will be missed by all.
Mom was not one to enjoy being fussed over but would enjoy a game of cribbage or a cup of tea in her honour. There will be no service by mom’s request. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence on the family’s online register at www.thompsonfs.ca
Happy gardening mom.
