Mom was born November 14, 1919 in Claytonville, SK. In 1928, the Kasko family moved to the Fir Ridge District where Mom met Dad. They were married on October 27, 1935. Mom was always a wonderful cook and baker. At the age of seventeen, with no modern conveniences, she cooked for a road crew of twenty-four men. Fifteen years later she cooked for a power crew of thirty. Along with family, there were most often forty-two sitting at the table. Mom always had a green thumb, growing a large garden and beautiful flowers. Mom’s family and friends will remember her for her great sense of humour and hearty laugh.
Thank you to Pat Chuey and staff at The Good Shepherd Villas for Mom’s wonderful care over the years.
