I moved to Woodstock over 50 years ago and am retired from a career as Justice of the Peace. The most enjoyable and satisfying part of my position was performing wedding ceremonies in Woodstock and around South Western Ontario. It became and still is my passion. I enjoyed everything from meeting the participants to the wedding ceremony. I look forward to assisting everyone in having a wonderful day. Since retiring my husband and I curled, learned to mostly kick dirt at the golf course, and travel. I am now learning shuffleboard and how to bowl.
