family. Born on August 27, 1917 - died on September 5, 2003, she was

and David Winsby and their respective families - Sam and Molly Nelson, and

and nieces, nephews and friends. An enigmatic woman most of her life, she
regrettably spent her last year on earth locked in the grip of an
untreatable geriatric psychologic dilemma. In spite of many valleys and
peaks, she inevitably made the count, adding a wry wit to many occasions.
She will be missed. No service at the request of her family. Flowers are
gratefully declined, donations may be made to the Victoria Cancer Research
