My Condolences for the great loss of your Mother.

She will always be remembered as the Iron Lady and Cornerstone of the Valdena Village.

She transported her many skills and
leadership when she immigrated to Canada.

She helped so many of the new arrivals (PAESANIS), when they first landed in Canada. She took many under her wings and gave them support as they required.

Rest In Peace.( ELVIRA )
