Sister to the late Margaret, mother of Catherine COUTURE and David (Jo-ann), grandmother of Laura and Daniel and great grandmother of Paige.

Cathy and David, Laura and Paige,

I am so sorry for the loss of you mother/grandmother/great-grandmother. Graceful, sophisticated, refined, and cultured, Mrs Friend (as I still called her) was like no other. Her smile was as beautiful as the sun breaking through the clouds. She was gentle and considerate, but could display a steely strength when needed. Her artistic ability was simply stunning. I am so grateful to have some of her art work in my home.
Mrs. Friend was a person to look up to as I grew up. She was the epitome of genteel refinement. She will be sadly missed by all her knew her, including me, and I will be forever grateful to her for her kindness to me throughout my life time.
