Grandma always liked the outdoors. Ever since she was young, she was her dad’s right hand. Going outside and helping him in the barn, the fields, and anywhere else her help was needed. She loved to do anything with her family, this resulted in Jan Lake fishing trips. Fishing, boating, pictures, and visiting were the focus of the weekend.
Grandma was a very grateful person. She kept good record of all she was gifted. She knew who gave her which plants in her garden. Her genuine character and her big, welcoming smile were known to many.
Passion of Grandma’s were very clear to all. She loved her and Grandpa’s Sunday drives, gardening, holidays, pictures, flowers, inukshuks, and birds. While these were all important to her, what she loved the most was her family.
