    Marilyn and family,
    Please accept our deepest condolences on the loss of your mom. I know that Phyllis fondly remembers her at UCW at St. David’s and the quilting they would do. I remember going to your house on Morley Trail and meeting Billie there. She was a remarkable woman. Much love from all our family to yours. Gail

    Aunt Billy was definitely”one of a kind”! Whenever we were in her presence she made you feel happy to be alive as her undying energy just flowed out to whoever was in her midst. I’m sure she had her “down days”, but she never burdened us with negative “vibes”. She could keep up with anyone in her little wirey body and always a great host, especially with the “perpetual teapot” and sweets! We have fond memories of our “Aunt Billie”. Our condolences to Marilyn, Jim, Brent and Jennie from Lynn (niece) and husband Doug Macdiarmid, Dorintosh, Sk.

    Our sincere condolences to your family on the passing of your Mother and Grandmother Wilda. She was always looked upon as a special cousin by my own Mother, Hilda Anderson, (Alex Walz). Mother and I enjoyed reconnecting with her many years ago while visiting my sister in Calgary. What a lovely lady!
