Life was simple then and I was blessed to come from a loving family. I fell in love and married Bruce Edward "Ed" Rowland (deceased April 7, 2008) in September 1944. We had two wonderful children, Michael Edward and Nancy Eleanor. My love and pride for them has filled my heart everyday of my life. I have had the pleasure of watching them grow and develop into adults, marry their chosen partners and succeed in their life professions. Michael married Gayle and they live in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Nancy married Jim and they live in Stony Plain, Alberta. Nancy and Jim have two boys, Bruce (Leslie) and Doug (Connie). I feel fortunate that God granted me these years. It allowed me the pleasure to watch our family grow and the pure enjoyment of sharing a part of their lives with them. To all my family, neighbours and friends: I cherished you all, as I know you cherished me. Thank you for your love and support.
