Meta was a nurses aide in Toronto and later retired to Kelowna, BC to be closer to her sister and brother.  She enjoyed the outdoors: hiking, skiing, bird watching, botany and she loved strolling along her beautiful park.  This park was on Springfield Road and she would walk everyday, feeding the ducks.  She also loved to paint sceneries and she made the “best” apple pies. 


There will be a Celebration of Life in the park on Springfield Road in July 2017 so her family from Toronto can attend.  A note will be sent out to family and friends when a date and time is set.  If you wish to make a donation in Meta’s memory, please donate to a Park or Bird Sanctuary, as this was her passion.  Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting
