Additional deceased include mom’s brothers Leonard and Brendan, and sisters Bernice, Anita, Barbara and Vera and special friend Bridget Bennett. Our mother will forever be missed by her four surviving children, Wayne, Clarence, Elizabeth and Brian; daughters-in-law Nancy, Gail, Theresa and Sharon; grandchildren Michael, Russell and his wife Tammy, Natelle, Steven, Nicholas, Stephanie, Meghan, Courtney, Lauren, Emily, and Sarah; and great grandchildren Lori, Austin and baby Alma Grace. She also leaves to mourn her sister Marlene, half-sister Blanche, very special friend and sister-in-law Rosemarie Murphy, devoted and loving cousin Betty Steele, very special caregiver Lucy Crawley, as well as a large circle of extended family and friends.
