I was born in South Wales in 1947 and came to Canada at the age of 8. My parents and three sisters moved
to southern British Columbia in 1968 but I remained in Ontario. My Mum and Dad passed away within four days of each
other in June 2010. They had celebrated 67 years of marriage on January 13th. My three sisters with their respective
spouses and my nieces and nephews lived in the lower mainland of BC; however, in the past few years my one sister has
retired to Mexico and another has died from brain cancer, while my youngest sister remains in BC.
I have lived mostly
in Southern Ontario and have made my home in Newmarket for the past 20 years. I am married to Jeff and we celebrated
our 25th anniversary on October 11th, 2012 with a trip to Hawai'i including a 7 day cruise. We have two sons and one
daughter, two daughters-in-law and eight grandchildren to whom I am "Nana", two boys (the eldest and the
youngest) and six girls. I enjoy my time with my family and try to spend as much time with them as I can.
My Dear Hubby & I!
This was taken on our 18th anniversary at our favorite place of
Los Abrigados Resort and Spa in Sedona, Arizona. It was taken by Nora Stewart, a photographer based in California who
often comes to Sedona as a wedding photographer. She certainly was able to capture us and our happiness!!
