Halifax; Dalhousie University, 1962. Died June 11, 2018, aged 82. Survived by 3 children, 4 grandchildren and a step-granddaughter. “In 1956 she became 1 of 4 women in a medical class with over 80 men. Upon her graduation from Dalhousie she received the Dr. R.O.

Another major accomplishment was being a wonderful mother to her 3 children while working full time, a rarity in her day.”
