I will fondly remember that wonderful smile and laugh. Tante Meta gave the best hugs too. So special. xxoo
Tante Meta was an absolute jewel that makes my heart sing. She was fun, kind, warm, friendly and loved kids of all ages. We enjoyed her stories, infectious laughter and beautiful smile. She was a defender of the underdog and gave the most amazing bear hugs.
One memory that comes to mind occurred at the cottage comes. While we were lazily hanging out at the dock, some of us swimming – she was prepping the catch of the day. As she was scaling along the shoreline, she began the chopping process. A task she had performed hundreds of times. Oops. Tante Meta discovered that fish was not quite dead. It bounced off the preparation stump. The image of her screaming, laughing and chasing after this poor one-finned fish with a bat will stay with us always.
You will live in our heart for many years Tante Meta as an everyday hero.
Tante Meta embraced life to its fullest. She had so much fun and laughter within herself that you couldn't help but let it infect you as well. She was generous, proud and down to earth.
A memory that brings smiles was how she saved me during my wedding. My dress wouldn't hang properly in the back; it dragged, tripping me at every snag. She took one look, knew it wasn't right. Before I knew it, she hiked up the back, throwing billowing fabric all over, crawled under it and tickety-boo, it was fixed.. She was a wonder!
Mostly, it's her laughter I'll miss. Knowing her enriched my life and I'm grateful to have shared time with her. RIP.
My memory of Tante Meta is that she was always smiling and laughing. She was larger than life. Her presence filled the room in such a positive way.
Condolences to the family.
Cherish the memories
Remembering Tante Meta, her smile, laugh, and wonderful spirit. Love always, rest in peace. Love Steven xoxo
