Very thankful for all the friendly people that have enriched Fay's life during her retirement on the island. She enjoyed the many music festivals, outdoor fairs and gatherings with friends at home or out for meals. The wildlife in her back yard gave her many hours of enjoyment-even naming some of the regular bird visitors. As her sister I will miss her dearly along with our frequent phone chats. Debbie from Thunder Bay.

So sad to hear of Fay's passing, Keith.
She was a wonderful friend and at one time neighbour.
I still cherish the baked potato and sour cream dishes she made me at her pottery class back in the 70's.
Condolences to Tim and his wife
