Passed away at home surrounded by her devoted and caring family on Monday September 24, 2018 in her 78 year after a courageous battle against cancer. Her perseverance was evident obtaining her High School Diploma as an adult and learning to play the bag pipes. She was a member of the Stouffville, Penetanguishene, Midland and Mass Legion Bands playing in multiple Rose and Orange Bowl parades as well as for Queen Elizabeth II.

Her smile and positive attitude will forever remain in our hearts. Loving partner of Ted Francis.
