She will be missed by her many nieces and nephews.
Aileen worked for Bell Canada in Picton until she met and married the love of her life Melvin and became a farmer’s wife. She always thought of others before herself and made the best chocolate macaroons and lemon meringue pie. Her family was her # 1. Flowers and birds were her enjoyment. To know Aileen was to love her dearly.
The family would like to thank the truly wonderful staff at Hallowell House for the past five years. Thanks for your kindness and care to make Mom feel as close to her own home as possible. We would also like to thank the staff at the Picton Hospital for their compassionate care received for mom during her final days.
