We have fond memories of mom and her sister Diana managing the Sea Shell Dining Room and Craft Centre, carrying on the legacy of their sister Wynn. Mom’s kitchen was always a beehive of activity and her most favorite place to entertain: morning coffee with Marg and friends, afternoon tea , doing crosswords, great conversations, wonderful stories and of course her constant singing while she worked away cooking amazing meals especially her Saturday night special baked beans and biscuits! Nothing pleased Mom more than Friday night dinners and singsongs at the Clementsport Legion.Family and friends were her passion- she truly was the most genuine and honest person.
