After leaving home, Mom met Dad in Edmonton, fittingly enough at a baseball game. They were married in 1946. Living in a few towns in B.C., they moved to Cedar and then finally Nanaimo.
Mom worked while raising four children, as a waitress, at the Malaspina Hotel, the Shoreline and Diners Rendezvous. She also catered weddings and banquets.
After Dads passing, Mom went back to school and got her GED, which she was very proud of. She finished her working career at Zellers Department Store.
Mom loved baseball, was a Blue Jays fan. Mom never missed(almost50 years), until the pandemic hit, presenting Dad’s memorial trophy to the 11-12 year old playoff winners.
