She will also be missed by her favourite Ottawa nieces and nephews and their families: Peter & Susan Stewart, John & Beate Stewart, Helen (deceased) & Harold Hoffer, and Jean (god-daughter) & Rick Williams. Mom/Granny was kind and generous, loved all children and animals, was baker of the best ever pies and buttertarts, knitter of blue mittens, ironer of sheets, homework supervisor, book lover, and so much more.
