Mom first started working many years ago at Parson’s Bakery then at Heinz. When we were young, she quit working to stay home with us and then went back to work years later at Parkdale Store and Service, where she worked for 30 years. She enjoyed volunteering for many years at Franklin Gardens Nursing Home. She liked to travel and has been from the West Coast to the East Coast of Canada. She loved traveling with her family to Florida, Alaska, Las Vegas and Grand Canyon. She loved camping with her granddaughters and her cousin Gail Elsom. She loved a good game of cards, Crokinole or Yahtzee. Mom was living on her own, independently, doing things the way she wanted to do them until recently.
