She then retired to join her husband in their jointly owned business, Oak Hill Beverage in Scarborough.
She loved the time spent with her children and grandchildren and travelling with her husband visiting family and friends. She loved all kinds of music, loved to dance, was an avid reader and enjoyed cooking. Above all, she had a deep and abiding love of her Catholic faith.
She is predeceased by her son, Dennis, in May 2010; her parents; a brother and a sister. She is survived by her husband of 40 years, Paul; son Craig and his wife, Laura of Vienna, Va.; her beloved grandchildren, Kora, Tyler, Aiden and Brennan; sister, Margaret, brothers Tom and Cahal; and many nephews and nieces.
