She was strong, determined, independent and a good provider as Dad was on the road for work most of the time. Use to contributing, she did in-home daycare. Many of the children she looked after came to know her as “Auntie Chick” as well as many others.
Once her own kids got older, she worked at Sunset Lodge, then the Kindersley Nursing Home, and later Heritage Manor as a cook.
