Throughout her life Golda, was employed at several jobs in the restaurant sector, Ben’s Bakery, and finally settled into the profession of a para-legal and retired from this position after the passing of her boss and dear friend, Arthur Hare, in late 2010. Although retired Golda, continued to act on several files and assisted whenever called upon. Golda’s main focus throughout her life was her unyielding love and dedication to her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Golda actively participated in all the milestones of all her loved ones, was the source of encouragement to pursue all dreams and aspirations, but most importantly, was the foundational rock that we all found solace and strength in during our times of need. Golda’s love for her family and friends was so steadfast it was unquestionable that she was an absolute angel amongst us.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses from the QEII Infirmary site for the care and compassion they showed Golda during her stay.
We the family pray that you rest peacefully our sweet beautiful angel, until we have the great fortune of seeing you again.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made, in memory of Golda, to the Canadian Lung Association.
