Ina’s parents emigrated from Scotland to Alberta in 1922 and settled in Clover Bar, Alberta where William worked in the coal mines.

Once her children were grown Ina worked for fifteen year at Rogers Cable Television. Ina and Vernon were very active members of St. David’s United Church in the 1960s where Ina sang in the choir. They met many of their life-long friends at the church. Later in life Ina attended Central United. Ina loved to travel and enjoyed many vacations with her children and grandchildren. She also loved baking and music, especially tunes from Scotland. In 2001 she moved to the Sierras of Tuscany condo where she had many wonderful friends and neighbours.

    Carol and Bruce and all of your family,

    Barb called me yesterday to tell me about your mother’s passing on to her new life. Dave and I send our sympathy to each of you. Your mom holds many special memories in my life and I know how special she is to you. Mothers hold a place in our hearts and lives that no one else does. May you find peace in the many wonderful memories of your time together. We are praying for you now and for the days of transition that lie ahead.

    We may not have seen each other often in the last several years as our paths have gone in different directions but I hold our friendship very dear.

    Hello to all of Ina’s family. We didn’t get to know Ina very well as we bought and moved into her suite (221). I have often said I wished that things had been different, as I know Ina and I would have become very good friends. Was not meant to be, but having known Bruce for many years, I was always able to keep in touch indirectly. Rest Well Ina.
