Terry was a 34 year employee at Markdale Hospital and active in the local figure skating, baseball and hockey clubs. After retiring she became a Lion's Club Member, tirelessly helping the less fortunate, and her dedication was acknowledged as a Helen Keller Award recipient and Honourary Director of Lion's Camp Dorset. She was an avid camper, loved card playing, dancing or just going for a drive. Her flower gardens were her passion and she loved arranging wedding bouquets for her daughters Margaret and Crystal and her own wedding. Garden flowers thrived in her care and she spent hours teaching Val on where and when to plant them. Bleeding hearts were one of her favourite flowering plants. Above all she cherished her time spent with her grandchildren.
Honey be safe, take care; you will always be with me in my heart, mind and thoughts forever. Love, Val.
