I extend my condolences to Bonnie, Tim, Kim, and Leanne and their families. I also send kind thoughts of Reta to Betty, Shirley and George. Reta's brother, Helmer was a very special neighbour of mine for 45 years.
Reta always greeted people with a cheery countenance and her sense of humour was uplifting!
Cherish your great memories of her and be thankful for the long time she had with you. God bless!

Dear Grandma Selleck, where do I start?
Always being so many miles apart.
My sister and I, could never wait to get back.
Two weeks each summer was always a fact!
But as we grew up, and progressed our lives.
We always wished, there were more Canada times! From the time we arrived, till the time we left!
Your farmhouse cooking was always the best!
Early to rise, and late to bed.
You always made sure all the kids were fed.
I remember your garden, out by the barn.
Picking fresh veggies, straight off the farm.
I’ll never forget your breakfast spread!
Made from scratch donuts, I hid under the bed.
You gave the best hugs and lots of kisses!
Always for filling your grandkids birthday wishes.
Don’t let me start about playing card hands!
The patients you had, till I would understand.
Lead with an ace or play the right Bower.
You always had the best grandma power!
Thank you for all my aunts, uncles and cousins.
The kisses and hugs I got by the dozens!
All great things must come to an end.
Now time with grandpa, you will eternally spend!
I would love and miss you always!
Your grandson, KARL JUNG xoxo

What I mostly remember about Reta was our time at Bonnie's playing cards .. I know she was a wonderful lady & will be missed a lot. She gave me a wonder friend, her daughter Bonnie.
May she find happiness in Heaven until we meet again.

Bonnie Hugs from afar... So sorry for your loss...……...
