Mom grew up in Love, SK., later moving down to the Coteau district south of Forgan to help with relatives on their farm. At that time she met the love of her life, Leif, to whom she was married on October 12, 1957. They moved to the family farm and raised four children and numerous foster kids. Mom worked at the Elrose Golden Years Lodge for a number of years while continuing to help Dad on the farm. They moved to Rosetown in 1989 for the winter months and in 1994, they moved to town permanently. Mom enjoyed square dancing, playing cards with friends, hooking rugs, reading, and her grandchildren. She also enjoyed her animal companions. There wasn’t a garage or auction sale Mom missed as she tried to find a good bargain on antiques or a book to read.
