I shall not live in vain
If I can ease one life the aching
Or cool one pain
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

Mom leaves behind her devastated extended family of Karen Mugford (Al), Bill Pike (Anne) and Jim Pike (Regina). She was a doting and devoted Grandmother to Rory Fitzpatrick (Dianne), Neil Fitzpatrick (Stephanie), Joshua Pike, Jennifer Pike, Justin Pike and Emily Pike. Her great-grandchildren were her special loves, Jackson, Katie, Julianne, and William. How lucky they were to have had her as their Great Grammi. Mom was also a "special Grandma" to Karen Bishop, Michael Mugford (Donna), Lynn Klugman (Steve), Diane Brennan (Tom), Janine Skorupa (Charlie), Paula Mugford, Chris McNeill, Mike McNeill and their families.

Very special Aunt to Pat Brown and Don and Louise Smith.
Mom was always forever a lady who worked tirelessly for her church, St James Anglican in Fenelon Falls, as well as their Community Care. After Dad died, her many friends, especially those at 70 Murray, became her life-line and she enjoyed so much their card games and bus trips together.We are all so grateful for having been part of her life. Our wish is that every child should know the love and devotion of a Mother and Grandmother like our Mom. She will be missed more than words can say and our lives will never be the same.
To One who bears the sweetest name
And adds luster to the same
Long life she had and there's no other
Could take the place of our dear Mother.
Rest in Peace Sweet Lady.
