Mother was born in Melfort, SK on July 16, 1918. She took all her grade schooling in Kinistino, SK going on to Business College in Yorkton, SK in 1937. She worked for the R.M. of Kinistino and the Bank of Nova Scotia. She met her future husband, Frank, while working in the R.M. office and they were married in May 1942. She resided in various places during World War II and returned to live in Prince Albert in 1947 where she has lived ever since.

She was a member of St. Alban’s Cathedral and belonged to “The Roberta E. Tilton” Women’s Auxiliary for years and later to the “Altar Guild”. She was also a member of the Cosmopals and the P.A. Ladies Curling Club for approximately 30 years. Mom loved having a flower garden, lawn bowling and spending summers at the Waskesiu cottage. She also enjoyed music, pottery making and playing bridge.

She had a deep concern for all her family, a love of nature and world travel, going to 8 different countries.

Some of the highlights she enjoyed were reunions with lifelong friends in 1981 and 1987, and with 50 Ozmun family members in 1995 held at the “Old Ozmun Hereford farm” (her father’s original homestead in Kinistino).

The family wishes to thank the amazing staff of Mont St. Joseph Home who cared for her for over 8 years and made her passing as comfortable and dignified as possible.
