arrival of grandchildren was another care-giving adventure. Mother
also worked as a professional care-giver well past the normal
retirement age, often caring for seniors that were younger than she
was. Mother passed away peacefully at Lion's Gate Hospital with her
sons at her side. We are grateful to the staff at Lion's Gate Hospital
