She was predeceased by her husband Russell Bond, her two sons, Doug Bond, Russell Bond Jr.; two granddaughters, Darleen Holic, Tracey Bond, son-in-law Gerard Holic, daughter-in-law Rita Bond and several brothers and sisters.
The family would like to take this opportunity to thank special friends Kenda, Sid and Phil, along with the doctors, nurses and caregivers for all their care and support over the past few months.
