She met and later married her husband Bob, also a Bell employee, in Islington and then remained in the Mississauga area until they both retired in 1997. In 2005 they moved to Brockville where they have been blessed with forming many great friendships that are so often only found in smaller communities. She found enjoyment in cooking her traditional Newfoundland dishes plus a variety of others as well, especially when shared with others. Among her other fond interests were family, knitting, decorating, shopping, Corvette cruising smaller communities and some amazing vacation trips, small or extended, always with Bob at her side. A big thank you goes out to the amazing staff and doctors of the Garden Street Palliative Care group of Brockville General Hospital for the care received while there and the assistance beyond through the CCAC (Community Care Access Center), whom with their affiliates have made such a wonderful difference.
