I’m a Napanee 'local', and the South Shore Hay Bay area has been my life-time home. I’ve been married since 1981 and we’ve been blessed with so much in life including two sons, two daughters-in-law and four grandchildren. One of the things I did after I returned to the 'work world' was to become a Designated Minister so I could conduct Life Celebrations like weddings or Baptisms. In addition, I love to quilt, enjoy woodworking and gardening, and have the satisfaction of something to show for all my hard work! I’m professional, warm and easy-going and I will ensure you are satisfied with the wedding ceremony you expect.
