Grandma there are so many memories of you raising 10 children to watching over a dozen grandchildren filling your heart with love. My best memories of you will be that every summer you would watch Jennifer and me while my parents went to work, and you would do your best to entertain us by putting on a movie/tv to teaching us a new card game. Another memory of you would be that I would eat your jars of fruit or your pies which you didn't mind at all you just wanted it gone so you can new pies. I will always remember that you gave me a place to sleep when I had two full time jobs and made me dinner. I think that made you happy because you had someone to talk to when the night was coming to an end. Also I will remember the Christmases we had at your house and all the family get together, or the Christmas bazaars at the merritton legion. Grandma you lived an awesome life, you got to see world change in so many way and watch everyone grow up to be the person they are today. I just wish you got see my daughter Isabella and my son Brixton. It's sad that your story came to an end, when there is so much still to see, I'm glad that you got to see the world a little bit. We'll see you again Grandma may you rest in peace with Grandpa and Snowflake, a long with Aunt Tracy and Uncle Hugh.

To mom with love. I loved the life that you and dad gave me. Mom's love was putting food on the table,you said to me working on the farms that you missed so much, I wasn't sure why but I know it was love for all of us. Love is how i feel when i think of you. You will always be in our hearts. Will miss you dearly.

I alwayed remembered going down to my grandparents and visiting my Great Grandma, we always had jalapenos peppers and she would always want one knowing it was too hot for her but once she bit into it the face she always made could make me laugh or crack a smile but she would always say "it's not funny" but I still laughed.

One of my favorite memories growing up was working in the orchard at Pikers with grandma is something I will never forget. She taught me how to treat a bee sting with mud. We would chase the little toads during our lunches.
She made an awesome cherry pie which was my favourite along with the excellent many family dinners we had.
I remember hours of playing cards whether it be crib, rummy or kanasta it was alway a great time .
I love you.

I beleive we only met once. At Aunt Laverna's 80th birthday party. I recall my Dad Ed or "Ted" speaking of Jim and Joan often, always with warm regard. My love and heartfelt condolences to those left behind. It's so very hard, but I promise it will get easier. Just takes time to soften the hurt. No one is forgotten that is kept in the heart of the living. Keep her in your heart always.

Dad used to call mom Farmer, as a nickname. She loved that. She enjoyed working on the fruit farms and later grew the most beautiful flowers at her house in St. Catharines. She was a free soul and used to ‘run away’ from her retirement home as she disliked following rules. She earned the nickname Run-away Grandma for that. She liked doing things her way. Her house was a refuge for many of us, and we would gather for wonderful huge meals, including her delicious pies. The more the merrier was true in her home. You are now free. I know how much you missed Tracey especially, and now you two are back together. Much love.

Mom loved horseback riding. In her younger days she had a horse named Red who she rode everywhere to and kept his saddle for many, many years. Anytime she could go riding I was her companion Precious memory now. God Speed
