Her surviving children are Sandi of Port Rowan, Ontario, Larry of Vernon, B.C., and Judi of Terrace, B.C. Her progeny has grown to 13 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren, with a fourteenth due in a week. Hattie was an avid bird watcher and never went anywhere for a walk without her binoculars.
