      I have too many memories to even begin to convey. The years have gone by so quickly, she was there when I started work, and we worked together for about 30 years. We also socialized in Terra Nova and at home, your mom and dad loved their cabin as we did. Take care, Bruce, Wanda , Kevin and families.

    My Mom worked for Nurse Elliot (that’s what she calls her). She lived with her for a few years and took care of her children: She certainly enjoyed her time there & spoke about the children & wondered where they all were. That was over 50 years ago!
    We are so sorry to hear about Ms Elliot and sending our condolences to her family & friends.
    Mom and I did visit the retirement centre a few years before Covid hit and someone mentioned that she was living there. So I went & found her and she and mom had a talk and I was so happy they got to see one another after so many years. Thinking of you all at this sad time. Shirley Burt (my mom) and Sherry

    So sorry to read of the passing of your Mom. We go back to the early fifties as students at the Grace with Myrtle being my senior by 6 months. Over the years we’ve had delightful times together, – Alumni dinners, trailering in Terra Nova NP, visiting in Clarenville and area. Always so much to talk about! She was special.
    My most sincere sympathy to the family.
