They resided in Vancouver until 1988; at which time the couple moved to Langley and following Roy’s passing Louise moved to Abbotsford where she could be closer to Mary-Lou and family.
Louise was an avid gardener and had a truly beautiful garden wherever she resided. She loved family gatherings, card playing and enjoyed all varieties of sports, she was quite the Canuck fan! She made some wonderful friends at Central Heights Manor where she enjoyed playing scrabble and knitting evenings to make infant hats for the MSA Hospital maternity ward.
She has made some wonderful memories and will never be forgotten.
