Her family was her pride and joy. She made each of us feel like we were a blessing in her life and her love was unwavering. She also wished to acknowledge Bev Russell, who was her special friend and caregiver for so many years. She was predeceased by her parents, Thomas and Rhonda MacPherson, her beloved son Douglas, and sisters Doris Peck, Verna Bond, and Winnifred MacPherson.
