Mom’s cremation before the memorial service will be followed by interment at a later date in Kamloops. We are all grateful for the time we spent with her, especially in the last year of her life battling cancer. Weekly blood transfusions kept mom alive and gave us a wonderful last year with her. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a blood donation in her memory or making a donation in her name to her favourite charity, the B.C. Children’s Hospital.
