My condolences to the Monette, Millington families. We love you guys very much! Silja or Mama, was an amazing woman, so loving and sweet. She would sometimes confused Cerise and I and we would all get a good laugh about it. She has always been such a huge support in Cerise’s life so I know she was a VERY family orientated, caring, mama bear of sorts! She will be greatly missed that’s for sure. RIP Dear Mama.
To Cerise (Mark), Chantal, Jake (Tiffany), Leo (Cecile), Jeanne (Kevin), and her other family & friends I’m sending our love.
Tasja & The Hay Family

My condolences, Leo and Jeanne. I always remember your Mom very fondly from the times spent with Mildred and Norman. She was always sparkling and just so cute. Today I was going through my old baking recipe cards and came across her Pepperkakku (ginger cookie) recipe. xo

My condolences to all of the family. I knew Silja (and Leo) as a child growing up down the street. They were both dear friends of my grandparents Sam and Liisa.
I remember she would always have cookies for me and my brother, in case we stopped by for tea or juice.
Silja had the best smile and such a great laugh.
May your hearts be filled with great Memories.
