Mom was born in Vancouver and graduated from St Paul’s hospital as a nurse in 1951. Mom and Dad married in 1954 and raised 4 children in Vancouver. Mom loved working as an emergency nurse both at St. Paul’s and St. Vincent’s from where she retired in 1989. Mom and Dad moved to White Rock where she continued her love of helping others by volunteering both at the Church and hospital. Mom’s Catholic faith was deeply strong and something she quietly shared through countless acts of love and compassion with family and all those around her. We will always miss Mom’s beautiful smile, her infectious laugh and her generous and giving spirit.
