Condolence: Dear Dan, Paul, Allen and Donna,

We are so sorry to hear about your Mother's passing. Mabel played a big part in welcoming me when I started teaching at Holy Family. Coming from Southern Ontario and a big city, I needed a lot of help getting settled in this beautiful North and Mable always helped when I needed it'.

I heard a lot about her children and was touched by how proud she was of all four of you. As a teacher and a mother, Mabel was a shinning example. I was lucky to have known her.

Rest in Peace Mabel.

Lydia and Jack

Condolence: Dear Dan , Donna, Paul, and Allan and Families- So sorry to hear of the passing of your Dear Mother. She was one of my school teachers @ Robillard when she and your Dad were courting! She was so patient and kind, and made herself available to every student- she loved teaching! She always had a smile on her face and a little giggle would always make you smile in return. May the love and support of friends and family give you strength as you go through this difficult time- Mom and Dad are together again!
