We lost a wonderful Mother, Grand-Mother (Nanny), Great Grandmother and mentor.
Our Mother studied at the University of Concordia and received her teaching certificate from McGill University.
She taught Kindergarten for many years when we lived in Laval, Quebec.
In 1996 Mum completed a diploma in Interior Design and Decorating from Sheffield School of Interior Design.
Mum had a true flare for fashion and design! A lifestyle of health and fitness was always important to her.
Our family horse farm was Oke Acres! One of her passions was horses, as she loved to ride and watch us compete. Our mother (Nanny) supported her children, grand-children and great grand-children in all their activities and was so proud of their accomplishments. Always ready to watch any sport or activity that was important to us!
Mum lived every minute to the fullest!
