Mom and Dad moved back up to the Comox Valley in 1956 where she enjoyed sing a long songs around the piano in her younger years. She loved camping out in the middle of nowhere, gardening and baking. Best Butter Tarts EVER!!! Mom’s busy life also consisted of working many years in House-keeping at the Fort Hospital in Comox. From there she spent 17yrs working at the HMCS Quadra Cadet Training Center.
