Farwell to a Wonderful Mother, Grandmother, Great Grama and Great Great Grama

Today I will not be posting a Sneak Peak but will be honouring the passing of my grandmother Cecilia (Moore) Dunse. Born in 1910, Manawaki, Quebec. She lived a full life marrying my Grandfather Earl Dunse and celebrated many happy married years until his death in 1993. She raised two out of four children during the Second World War, and later another daughter and son, 4 children in all. She will be sadly missed by 13 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and two great great grandchildren.

She now joins my grandfather, cousin Gail, my sister Karen and cousin Vaughan.

We will be celebrating her life today with a small wake and funeral, followed by a service in the chapel.

The following are some pictures that I had which I would love to share with you.

My condolences and prayers are heading your way Jo-Ann from South Carolina. Your Grandmother is now among the angels, relatives and the Lord where she will be very happy. She will be looking down helping and guiding the rest of the family in spirit.
