Mom worked at Lakeview Lodge since opening day. She loved doing her job with compassion and dedication for the people she cared for. Mom enjoyed traveling, concerts, shopping, bingo, socializing with friends, and having lunch with her kids. She lived her life to the fullest, embracing others with her warm and caring spirit; always full of humour and leaving others with a smile. 

A special thanks to Standing Buffalo Dakota Nation Chief and council. The family would also like to thank the doctors and staff at Regina General Hospital unit 6F for their wonderful care and support.
