She was a mother, businesswoman, and amazing grandmother. She did many things in her lifetime, raised a family, owned and operated a Dairy Queen in Port Hope, Ontario and then in Amherst, Nova Scotia. She also sold real estate for Century 21. One of her hobbies was selling her homemade preserves at the Amherst Farmers Market. She loved time with family and will be deeply missed by us all.
