Winnipeg’s Misericordia Hospital, then Thunder Bay Hospital. While working in Kenora, Mum married Allan McDougall. In 1976, they moved to Gimli, and she enjoyed being involved. Her accomplishments included life membership in the Kinettes Club, board involvement in the Gimli Handivan, and community concert bells engagement. Mum loved St Bartholomew Anglican Church at Winnipeg Beach. Our mother loved pets, cats, fish, and rabbits. She loves everyone. The Gimli Children’s Centre’s wonderful staff welcomed Mum back to work. She worked as a Teaching Assistant at Gimli High School till retirement.

Mum taught her children to love travel, which started with family road trips to Devon and Cornwall. That was her preferred method of learning about different cultures. We enjoyed her European hitchhiking. Mum and her companion Gwen cruised Alaska, Mexico, the Caribbean, Japan, Russia, and China. family Christmas trip to Mexico. She never reached New Zealand, but her children will finish her journey.
