Thinking of you today, and sending our condolences. We have lovely memories of visits with Aunt Thelma and you all through the years, both West and East — when you folks made the long drive to Saskatchewan (especially when we cousins were kids) and when we were in Montreal or Toronto ... Uncle Wes winning at the racetrack and taking us all out for a meal at “Ruby Foo’s,” then a few years later, Aunt Thelma chuckling with amusement when we returned the hospitality by inviting you two for supper at “Ruby Lou’s” at Camp Outlook!
Take care,
Laurel & Jim Kreuger

What a beautiful tribute for a beautiful lady, - Aunty Thelma. Our condolences to you, Uncle Wes, and to your family. We remember stopping in to visit Thelma and she was so excited to see us, remembering all our names. She also wanted to show off her prize winning tomato plant! There was a photo proudly displaying the size of it!
God Bless,
Cheryl & Dusty MacDonald

Can remember cabbage rolls. It's only special aunts that let you leave the cabbage and just eat the filling.
And, when there is a mouse in the house, a margarine tub is requested. The mouse goes back outside with her characteristic efficiency. A quick look served notice about whose job it was to coax her sister-in-law back down off the kitchen chair.
