They lived in Ladysmith, where their two daughters Kathy and Diane were born and eventually moved to Nitinat Camp and Lake Cowichan. Son Gary arrived in 1964 and they stayed in Lake Cowichan until 1980 then moved up island to Courtenay, where mom resided in her own home until the time of her passing.
Mom leaves behind her three children, Kathy, Diane (Rod) and Gary (Laura); six grandchildren, Jody (Blair), Kelly, Matt (Stephanie), Melissa (Conrad), Mark (Tanya) and Derek; nine great-grandchildren, Jakob, Brody, Mason, Mckenna, Kayden, Jada, Max, Charlie and Louis, one brother Dave (Berna), sister-in-law Verna, numerous nieces and nephews and some dear old friends.
