Beloved Aunt of Irvan Taylor (Barb). Vie loved her Toronto Maple Leafs, they gave her many happy years of cheering them on with our dad. Maybe this year will be the year Mom and the Leafs will win the Stanley Cup. You and Dad can watch them from above and cheer, louder “Go Leafs Go”. Mom loved her life in Peterborough, having moved here from Port aux Basque Nfld. She met and married our Dad in 1955 and together they raised 4 children in a loving home on Bethune Street. We were blessed to have great neighbours, friends and family thru the years. Our parents made sure we always knew we were loved.
