Passed away on January 27, 2018, just after her 94th birthday. Finally back in the arms of her beloved husband Dick Couling who predeceased her almost 52 years ago. Also waiting is her cherished son Rick(2009) and his wife Laurie(2012). Left to cheer on her Blue Jays and complete the Globe and Mail crossword puzzles are her daughter Kathy Beaudoin(Richard), their children Tricia Dzikowski(Jay) and Dan Beaudoin(Melissa), Rick’s children, Trudy Lawrence(Wes), Rick Couling(Amy), Mike Couling(Jenn), Matt Colwill(Jill), Becky Waugh(Matt), Cayla Barney(Mark), Sara Melville(Kyle) and Nick Couling. Her brother Ernie Hayes and his wife Dorothy are more than attentive devoted family but caring loving friends. Also survived by her sister Myrtle Lamb and her husband Ron who live in BC but also in her heart. Lovingly remembered by Marna and Dean Miller and Meagan and Cody Barnes. Her legacy of love will be honoured by 15 great grandchildren, her extended family and many loyal friends. Her children and grandchildren have been recipients of her handmade quilts and her unconditional love.
