After her retirement from the Post Office in 1978, she volunteered on a regular basis with the Coronation Library. She was proud of her work at the Library. She left Coronation and moved to Stettler to join her sisters.
A memorial service will be held at Trinity United Church, Coronation, Alberta on Saturday, January 16, 2009 at 2:00 P.M. “The prairie winds blow through the grass on the hay sloughs, and the hawks soar and circle above
as they have done for centuries.
In the time scale of eternity we lived here for just a little while.”
