Mom loved cooking, gardening, flowers and all plants. She had a green thumb to grow anything indoors or outdoors. When creating her food dishes, her common saying was “something is lacking!” One of the many memories is her grandchildren naming Mom’s farm kitchen “Baba's Food Factory”. Her spirit to always lend a helping hand at community events in the Brandon School District and Wroxton District were generous. To her family, relatives and friends, young and elder, near and far, we thank you and we thank God for sharing Mom’s love.
