My husband Ken predeceased me by 11 years. I am survived by my son Brent Thompson and his wife Lesley of Calgary and by my grandchildren Susan Padua, and her husband Rodel along with their son Rigel, and Mark Thompson, and his wife Heather along with their sons Rowan and Torno, all of Calgary except Torno who is in Vancouver.
