Remembering Virginia Hunter
May 15, 1938 to November 19, 2021
Virginia Hunter passed away peacefully at Mackenzie Health Hospital on November 19, 2021 after a long

dinner parties. She also enjoyed going out for dinners at her favorite places, sharing good food,

of time. She always had a smile on her face and gave the best hugs.
