June 7, 1934 – April 12, 2019
Peacefully, and with a valiant determination to stay, Mom lost her battle with cancer at the age of 84. She left this world on her own terms, in her own home and with her children by her side. She leaves now to join her beloved husband Carl. We find comfort in knowing that no finer man could be waiting for her on the other side. Finding strength in her spirit forevermore are her children, Steve (Lorraine), Fred (Sally), Jeff (Karen) and Cyndi, and her grandchildren; Stefanie and Jorden Moir, Tammy Billard, Alanah Head, Erin Sneyd, Lindsay and Chelsea Moir, Kylie Harris and Cody Howard and her great-grandchildren, Sophia, James, Autumn, Charlotte and Everly. They will grow to know their Great-Grandma through our stories and remembrances. Mom also leaves behind her step-children, Karla, Kelly and Kamala and her sisters, Anne Litzen and Val Owens. Mom is predeceased by her parents, Charles and Mabel, and her siblings, Shirley, George and Jim. Mom was retired from the A&P in Dundas and loved playing cards, winning at the casino and spending time at the Hamilton Air Force club. She leaves behind her cat Pepper, who continues to search for her since her passing. We thank Dr. Kouroukis, without whom she may not have had the opportunity to meet her great grandchildren. We thank Dr. Anna-Marie Emili who, with her care and commitment, made mom’s passing as peaceful as possible. Lastly, we would like to extend our appreciation to our support team, PSW’s Michelle, Vicky and Mary, VON and LHIN staff who supported us in mom’s final days. Special thanks to Colleen and George. Friends and family are invited to Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St, Dundas, on Thursday April 18, from 1 – 2 p.m. with a memorial service to be held at 2:00 p.m.. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA would be appreciated.
