Mom was a member of the association Les Femmes Acadienne de la Région d’Argyle, Le Reveil de Pombcoup and Le Village Historique Acadien.  She was very proud of her Acadian heritage. 

In her younger years, she loved to dance, play bingo, play crib and was an avid bowler up to 3 years ago. 

Prior to her retirement to Pubnico, she worked most of her life at Bickerton Industries Ltd., Port Bickerton, Nova Scotia. 

Mom loved dining out with her friends and family and so as a last salute, I raise my wine glass to you Mom and may you rest in peace. 

Thank you to Home Care Halifax, especially Kaneisha and Laurie who took such great care of her during the last few months. 

A special thank you to Dr. Nabha Shetty who went above and beyond in assisting Mom and to whom we are forever grateful.
