Mom was born in Yorkton, Sask.

and raised in Cardale, Man. She

moved to Prince Rupert once she

was done her schooling. It was here

she met her husband Len. Mom

worked for the Coca-Cola Bottling

Co. in the bottling plant. They were

married in 1945 in Cardale and

returned to Prince Rupert where

they remained until 1952 when

they moved to Smithers.

In Smithers she worked alongside

Len as the Coca-Cola distributor

from Hazelton to Burns Lake.

Mom was the loader/unloader,

sorter and bookkeeper while Len

shared the loading/unloading and

did the driving as well as working

for the CNR. After they left the

Coca-Cola business, mom worked

for the Eastman•s at the Hilltop

Hotel and later for the Bruintjes•

at the Bulkley Cleaners until her

retirement.

Mom truly loved being at their

cabin on Babine Lake as well as

camping and •shing in the local

lakes. Her greatest loves were her

grandchildren and animals. She was

never without a dog of her own.

Mom had Parkinson•s disease for

many years but with dad•s help was

able to stay at home until a year

and a half ago when she moved to

the Bulkley Lodge. Mom passed
