From: Leigh-Ann Foote (King)
Relation: met in 1979

The Gendron family was the first family that I met when my family moved to Cranbrook in 1979. Right away I knew that I would love Ivy like a second mom as she always had a way of making me feel right at home. Lori and I were close friends until we both got married and went our busy ways! I did have the privelage of spending time on family outings, helping out with Lori’s wedding, and being around when Ivy and Ray became grandparents. Through my eyes, I will always see Ivy as a strong willed woman that a person just learns to love. My deepest condolences to Ray, Lori/family, and Derek/family. Love from, Leigh ann Foote
