Mom showed her quiet strength while raising a family and working alongside our Dad on the family dairy farm. She looked forward to visits from her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Mom loved all animals and skillfully patched up all the injured creatures we would bring to her. Doreen’s family is forever grateful for all the outstanding care and love provided by the many nurses and PSW’s of Bayshore Health Care, and the PSW’s from CarePartners. Thank you to Susan for all the loving care you showed to mom and for the many donations of food. We truly appreciated your help during this difficult time.
