  2. Kathleen & George Baker :

    Toots passing will leave a void – for George many, many memories of a loving big sister – funny and ready with (good) advice. For Kathleen Toots was a unique and interesting person, smart,
    attractive, vivacious, charming, generous and one who ‘s company was always enjoyed. And George agrees …She will be missed.

  4. Glenn & I are very saddened to learn of Florine’s passing, as we know only too well how much she will be missed by her loving family. We have happy memories of good times and lots of laughter, both at our house and at hers. Not the least of these was a fun and rousing Robbie Burns night hosted by Florine and Don. As a successful, independent businesswoman, she is beyond compare. She must have been well ahead of her time when she started out so many years ago. Tremendous lady and we are glad to have known her.
