My condolences to Mary and Brenda and families on the passing of your Mother and Grandmother. I will miss my visits with her at Falconbridge Extendicare. Great Aunt Lottie was ever so proud of each and everyone of her family, especially her grandchildren.
She had many stories to tell when you would drop by. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

We all will surely miss Lottie! As one of many PSW's, I had the pleasure of taking care of her and getting to know her. I always said to her that it must of been interesting seeing the world change and still be cognitive enough to remembering it all. Rest in Peace "Miss Lottie" ... hugs to all of your family.

Honouring Dear Aunt Lottie, my Dad's sister and the last of eleven Smith children...
She was loving, kind, hard working, and lots of fun. Her laughter lifted spirits.
My Mom, a warbride benefitted from her support as she learned to cope in a new country.
Warm memories of a lady who lived a long and giving life...
