Mom was a wonderful cook and homemaker. She loved flowers and had a beautiful flower garden. She had many hobbies which included leather making, sewing, pottery, crocheting and knitting. She knit hundreds of mitts for family and friends and donated many more.
She was a kind, gracious lady, always ready with a listening ear and coffee and tea. She made the best cinnamon buns and Knake brod (Swedish bread).
In 2013 she moved to North Bay to be closer to her family. She lived at Marina Point Retirement Home until her passing.
