Oh my what a life well lead. My son Joey and I so enjoyed our time spent with Deenie while we lived on the island. An inspirational garden and gardener I loved to sit with tea and cake and talk about the days business and just how did her garden grow. I will treasure my mindscapes of Deenie with that fabulous coat her movie star glasses and stunning hat as she promenaded through our winding streets. In the words of the late Bob Hope "thanks for the memories". tabby and joey with joyous respect

I had the privledge of meeting Deenie in Sept of 2009-what a wonderful lady-my parents were Tom & Betty Clayton of Clayton's Meat Market/Grocery Store on Centre Island up until 1956-my Mother spoke to Deenie @ her window in 1996 & they shared some wonderful memories

So many wonderful memories - watching the sunrise from the 20th floor of the Eaton Tower - and visiting her Garden on Ward's Island. Time to rest, Deenie - we will miss you.


In Loving Memory...
