To all the family, My deepest sympathy, Sis was a great lady, small but mighty. We worked for years together at different food venues. She was my right hand gal. We had fun and enjoyed our work. God bless her.

Sad to hear. Auntie Sis was such an unassuming and gentle soul reminded me so much of Gramma Cowan. Last of the family, must have been all those long daily walks she used to take. Loved it back in the day when i would come home and we would pop in to the legion for a drink. She will always have a special place in my heart. She was so very good to my Mum Leona and Mum treasured her older sister. So good to read her family at her side as she passed, her kids, grandkids and great grandkids were her world. Rest in peace.

A tribute to my special Mother-in-law: The other day I looked above and saw an Angel near. I asked a favor for someone I love and hoped my message was clear.
Please Angel, let my Mother-in-law see she's loved so very much and Angel will you promise me to let her feel your touch.
The Angel spoke and moved my way. That's when it's feather fell...'This gift is yours to give to her this day, it proves my promise well.'
You are so loved and will be so very much missed, Mom!
