Predeceased by husbands - John Dickens (2015), Fredrick (Casey) Durocher (1971).Born in Kapuskasing, ON, she was one of 11 children.  She attended Dalhousie University and upon completion she moved to Montreal to begin her working career.  Leaving Montreal, Mom found permanent residence here in Sarnia, ON.  A warm, strong loving mother of eight children, 16 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren. Mother to Paul (Estelle), Steve (Mionne), Pat (Yolande), Denise (Bill) and Laurie.  Predeceased by sons Gary, Dennis, Joe. When the Lord made Mom, he blessed her with the most admirable qualities. Loved by all, she was our Queen. A warm spiritual woman who greeted everyone with kindness & that brilliant smile.  Her artistic abilities live on as she has blessed each of our homes with her hand painted watercolors.  She cherished her days as a member of the Catholic Women’s League for 45+ years. We are thankful for the generous years we were able to share. Mom will be forever missed, forever loved. We are eternally grateful to the PSW’s & Nursing staff of Vision Nursing Home, whose compassion, love, respect and care towards our mother was amazing and the same characteristics were extended to us while with Mom.
