Our dear mother Emily passed away in her sleep on December 1, 2012, at age 92. Loving and treasured wife for 54 years of the late Thomas Story Sterling (2003). Her family roots were in Co. Fermanagh, Ireland, where her parents Rebecca Acheson and Henry L. Bustard were born. Emily was born on a homestead near Kindersley, Saskatchewan. She had fond memories of growing up in Matheson, Northern Ontario, with her five siblings (Betty, Ross, Ruby, Gladys, and Robert), now all deceased. Remaining are her dear sisters-in-law Edith Bustard (Ross) and Elizabeth Bustard (Robert). She is mourned by her daughter Anne Sterling and grandsons Evan and Grahame Sterling, and her daughter Eleanor Conboy (Keith) and grandsons Christopher and Andrew Conboy. Will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews, especially Janet Elliott and Elizabeth Mallon with whom many happy holidays were spent. Thanks to the staff and friends at Landmark Court residence where she lived for the past nine years.
