I have so many good memories of Stevie volunteering at Canadian Blood services and many chats while walking my dogs in the neighbourhood. Then always seeing her at the carnival for a burger with her sisters .She was a great lady and always so kind. Will be so very missed.
So sorry for your loss

So sad re Stevie's passing. Have known her for almost 40 years. A great nurse she was a proud member of the Niagara Occ Health Nurses Association. What a fine lady ... always cheerful.. always thinking of others. Along with her dear friend Pat, will raise a glass to her at Ft Erie this Spring .
