Mom loved to watch baseball. She played softball and was a much sought after pitcher. She also loved to listen to ‘Hockey Night in Canada’ on the radio. Mom was an incredibly hard worker. She loved gardening and cooking large meals and baking lots of bread. After her retirement, Mom travelled extensively; Russia, Phillipines, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, cruised the Carribean and Alaska. Her favourite trip was travelling Canada coast to coast.
