Verna was pre-deceased by her husband Johnny, son Donald, and her siblings Bill, Laurie, Jim, Alice and Dan. Aunty Tuffet, as she was known to the Stettler and Gadsby gang, will be fondly remembered by nieces, nephews, relatives and friends but in particular, she’ll be missed by her sisters-in-law, Myrt and Alpha. Our Mom was very proud to be a ’48 Grad of the Holy Cross School of Nursing and will miss her fellow alumni. It was Verna’s wish to have a celebration of life in Calgary and Gabsby later this summer.
