On October 22, 2017 we sadly said goodbye to a dear brave courageous wife, loving mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law and aunt, after a brief battle with cancer, that took us all by surprise. Missing her greatly are her loving, caring dear husband Allister, loving sons Brian, Anthony (Charlotte), beloved daughter Vanette (Trevor), dearest and sweetest granddaughters Natalie and Erin, precious grandson Hugo (Huey), sweetest sister ever Rosilan (Jack) and niece Karen, sister Irene (Bern), as well as many other family members, relatives and many treasured friends. At her request cremation has taken place and no visitation is arranged. A private interment service for the immediate family, to take place at a later date. Special thanks to her Community Health Care and Palliative Care Team and to Maple, her wonderful Homecare worker. To send a message of condolence or to sign the memorial guestbook, please visit
