This was my mom's life span. It may be seen as too short by some but she got to see a lot in that time. She was raised by a single mother in an era when such a thing was frowned upon, luckily her father was a member of the Canadian Navy so his absence wasn't a "scandle." She got married and raised a small family, just my sister and me. She became a grandmother younger than most at age 41. By the time she was 51 she had 7 grandbabies. She got to see most of them graduate high school, my 2 are the only ones still in school. She became a great grandmother at age 64.

We had our trials and tribulations and now life will have to move on without her here with us. She will be missed but never forgotten.

We love you Mom emoticon
