It was during this time she met and married her late husband, Francis, on November 22, 1949. Not only was mom devoted to the caring of her family, always putting them first, but also devoted to her spiritual faith. She was a member of St. Ninian’s CWL and in 2015 received her 60 year pin. She was always willing to help others through her care and support and numerous contributions to charitable organizations, Throughout our growing years her door was always open to family and friends, whether for a short visit or an overnight stay, She loved to laugh and took enjoyment in playing a few pranks.


She will be dearly missed by all those who knew her, especially her daughter, Annette (Tony) Lamers, Antigonish; her son, Carl (Eileen) Boudreau, New Glasgow; grandchildren, Mark Lamers, Halifax and Sheri (Rob Jameson), New Glasgow and numerous nieces and nephews.
