Thank you to Shannex Neill Hall Nursing Home in Fredericton N.B. for helping take care of her during her final months. Special thanks to her nieces Pamela and Debra for helping her over the last several years to stay living independently until her last year, she couldn't have done it without your love and support and we are grateful she had you both.
Alta was loyal to God and read her bible daily and loved listening to gospel music. 
She loved playing cards with her family, watching game shows, doing puzzles, cooking, reading and listening to music. 

Her favorite place was at her summer camp where she was always surrounded by family, and laughter. Alta (Nan) will be missed by all that knew and loved her.
