My name is Pamela, I am Gail's daughter, granddaughter of Glenora, and Trudy's cousin.

My grandmother lived until the age of 97, and anyone that knew her knew she was a headstrong woman. I affectionally call my grandmother Nanny Boo-Boo. When I was little, and even as an adult when I would visit she would greet me with "Hey Boo Boo" hence referring to her as Nanny Boo Boo and my children calling her NanNan Boo-Boo.

When I think of my grandmother an array of memories come to mind:

When you arrived at her apartment door it took her about 2 minutes to actually open the door to let you in after she unlocked all the locks, chains, bolts etc. Her candy dish on the coffee table was always full...she microwaved her french fries...she always sat in her glider rocker in the living room in front of the window and rocked (and of course peeked through the sheers)...she loved doing crossword puzzle books...her apartment was always spotless and everything in its place...you weren't allowed to sit on the bed after it was made...you weren't allowed to talk on the phone during a thunder and lightening storm...soap operas, Bob Barker or the news was usually on the television or newfoundland music on the radio...she always fed you well and to this day corned beef and cabbage, sauerkraut and rabbit stew make me think of her. She was always offering you something and insisted I take something every time I left her home "I bought this but I don't like it, here take it so it doesn't go to waste"...crossing the street she would always grab my hand, even as I got older, she was always very cautious of her surroundings.

She lived a long life, and was the last surviving of 9 siblings.

I wish I could be there for the graveside service, but I will be there in spirit, and thinking of my mother and Trudy and those my grandmother's life touched.

With Love,
Pamela

Trudy and family,
Judy and I lived across the hall from Glennie and Archie on Esdaile Ave. for 10 years. Your parents were the most wonderful and helpful neighbours, caring for our plants and mail when we often went on a vacation. We visited Glennie when she moved to Tupper, but that is many years ago now.

You can be rightly proud of your parents and we hope you have many good memories, as we do, of your caring and loving parents. Glennie was so enamored with your children, and always had stories to share with us on visits.

We are far away in Tatamagouche now, but we often remember the "neighbourhood" of 21 Esdaile Avenue, with the Robertsons and Fergusons, as well as you while you worked at Sobeys.

We wondered where Glennie had moved to, and we are hopeful she had good years in her long life.

My condolences to your family on the loss of your mother/ grandmother/ great grandmother. Years ago, I used to talk to her at Sobeys all the time. She enjoyed her walks every day.
