Remembering Aunt Simone

Simone, who was Mom’s elder sister, died one year ago today on 28 May 2013. She had been in poor health for some time, but died peacefully.

One of the things I remember the most about Aunt Simone is her visits to our home in Timmins. She, with one or two of her children in tow, would drive north to see us, either in July or August. Here, Aunt Simone liked to spend time picking wild blueberries to take back home. After we moved to British Columbia, Aunt Simone came west, often travelling with sister Madeleine. She still loved to pick berries during those visits.
