Our sincerest condolences, prayers and love go out to you Haley, Joe and Hunter. I know you and your Mom were very close and spent a lot of time together. I am sure that the time you spent with her in her last days were very appreciated and epitomized the relationship you had your whole life with your Mom. Most children would be envious of the relationship you had with your Mom and can learn from the love you demonstrated while caring for her as well as the time you shared prior to her illness. May the sorrow you have now be overshadowed by the good memories you will cherish the rest of your days. All our prayers, Daren, Kim, Alicia and Emma Zoldy

This is the saddest news. We have such cherished moments with your family and mine and Marshall's and all the friends from the coffee club. Years of happy times. I loved your mom cause she was so happy and always smiled and found good in everything and everyone. That's what I remember about her. Our parents are in paradise happy with our Lord. Stay in touch. Love you.


So sorry for your loss. Our hearts go out to you and your family at this difficult time.

Hayley, Joe and Hunter, we are so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom. We can’t even imagine how hard it will be to say goodbye to someone, who has been such a good friend, as well as a parent to you. We know how close you were and how much you enjoyed each other’s company. I’m sure the support you provided to your Mom over the past few months was very special and of comfort to her in her illness. Hopefully, there is some solace in knowing she is enjoying your Dad’s company again. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Love Greg, Leslie, Katie and Sam

Your mom was a loving, devoted mother and you carry that torch, as you are also a loving, devoted person. You were there when she needed you! Now she is free from all pain and with God in all His splendor and glory. One day, you will see her again, as she is expecting your arrival. For now, it is hard on your heart because you miss her. May time help heal your heart and the bright hope of heaven lift your spirits. My sincere condolences to you, Joe and Hunter. Hugs

Hayley, Joe and Hunter I’m sending my deepest condolences to you all at this time. Shirley will always hold a special place in my heart as I’ve known her all my life and have many fond memories of her especially her primary class. Remember it’s ok to mourn but she is once again reunited with Gord and other family members who have passed.

This makes me so sad. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. Shirley was a beautiful lady inside and out and always had the deepest compassion and love for everyone. Truly a sad loss of a wonderful lady I loved and respected greatly. God speed Shirley.


Dear Gordie. My heart is heavy after this notice of your Mom. Please know that your mom was ALWAYS a beautiful lady. Beautiful in looks but more beautiful in her heart. Remembering how many times she looked out for me as a kid has always stayed with me. Most memory I have of her was her yelling at me one day hahah. COREY EVANS ! YOU COME DOWN OFF THAT ROOF RIGHT NOW !!! Cant remember if I fell off the roof or if you Gord PUSHED me off. Broken nose from the fall. After many years living in Toronto then coming back home , who was the 1st person I ran into ? You bet.. your Mom. My hubby Troy was living in the house at your moms.. the house I spent many many times in. Who would have thought that after 30 years away I would end up right back in your house again ! Ans boy was your mom funny. I called her up to see if she would allow me to dress up Troys apartment for our 1st Valentines day. After I assured her that it would be ok with Troy , your Mom even helped me decorate the apartment. Oh yes Gordie , your mom was always my special friend. Always looking out for that crazy kid COREY. And I am sure she looked out for all your friends as time went on. If ever I thought that someone would live forever , it was your mom. And she will live forever Gord , in my heart and mind. I was truly blessed to have your mom in my life looking out for me and I will NEVER forget her. You had one of the most beautiful parent ever. Please know I am thinking of you and your sister . Be good to each other and stay close. Love from my heart Cor xox .
