She enjoyed all the times she spent with family and friends, especially Christmas, Birthdays, Easter, Mother’s Day and family vacations. She had a great sense of humour and she had a big heart. She was a great cook. Her lemon pies, datenut loaves, raisin tea buns, Christmas cakes, and roast chicken dinners will be missed. Leah will especially miss Nan’s chicken stuffing made with Newfoundland savoury. Matthew and Trudy-Bridgette will miss the way she made toast!
