Heaven gained an angel when our precious mother, grandmother and dearest forever friend, Vina Foord of Macoun, SK slipped away peacefully on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 at Mainprize Manor & Health Centre, Midale, SK.

Left to cherish her memory are the greatest loves of her life, Lorraine (Greg Griffin) Foord, Linda (Jeff) Foster, George (Chris) Foord, Tom (Diena) Foord and their families as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Vina was predeceased by her parents; husband Ernest and siblings.

Vina was born in Poland on January 2, 1930 to Julia and Adam Milewicz, the youngest of seven children. She made her way to Canada via the United Kingdom where she made life-long friends and created special memories.
