She leaves behind a daughter Joan and Carl Gillis; granddaughters Naomi (Dave) and Pam (Howard); great grandson Jason (Jen) and great granddaughter Stephanie (John). Mum was born in Calgary, AB, grew up and went to school in the Mazenod, SK area. Mum and Dad were married on December 7, 1940. They moved to the Gray, SK area in October 1947 where they lived until retiring in October 1971. They lived in Oak Harbor, WA and Las Vegas, NV until returning to Regina, SK in July 1995. Mum lived on her own until September 15, 2012 when she got shingles and then a cracked pelvis. She had only given up driving in May of this year. The last month she resided in Solace Care Home on Queen Street in Regina where she passed away. At Mum's request, there will be no service. A family graveside service will be held later in the spring. Thanks to all the staff of the Solace Care Home, especially Dr. Kathy Ferguson, Dr. Robin Hughes and Shawn Armstrong RN.
