She leaves behind her husband, John Buckley of 52 years; her children, Diane Burke, Mario Methot, Stanley Methot and Darlene Methot.

Mom worked many years at the Manitoba Theatre Centre and took pride in her work. She enjoyed and loved spending time with her family and grandchildren. Mom loved her yearly trips with her husband John to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where she had the courage to go parasailing. She enjoyed her bingo nights, and relaxing with a jigsaw puzzle.

Mom had a big heart, was strong willed, loving, caring, and a feisty little spit fire to all who knew her.
