It is with heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our mother, in the early morning of Monday, April 4, 2016 at her residence, the Edith Cavell Care Centre.

Cam had been predeceased many years ago by her mother Agnes, and her father, Tom. Her husband Garth either passed away in 2004, or maybe he just went curling somewhere…

She is survived by her sister Connie, of Calgary; two sons Gregg (Janis) of Edmonton, and Baden of Lethbridge. Also surviving are her grandson Dan (Lori) of Calgary, and granddaughter Kodee of Sherwood Park, AB. Her great-grandsons are Nathan and Chase Pilling from Calgary, along with nephew Howard (Ingrid) Zerr of Calgary; niece Marsha (Andy) Hamilton of Summerland, BC; in addition to numerous great-nieces and great-nephews.

The family would like to sincerely thank the staff at the Edith Cavell Centre for the never-ending friendliness, care and attention given to Cam as well as the other residents. At Cam’s request, no funeral service will be held.
