A Death In The Family

Shortly after midnight yesterday the last member of my father’s siblings died at the age of 101. She lived through so many eras of Canadian history: the Dirty Thirties on the farm, WWII in a village on the prairies, the migration to the city of Winnipeg, decades of life in the city, caring for elderly parents, the down-trodden and nieces and nephews, my generation, life on a meager pension and finally fading away in a nursing home. Rest in peace, Aunt Divona.

About Robert Pogson

I am a retired teacher in Canada. I taught in the subject areas where I have worked for almost forty years: maths, physics, chemistry and computers. I love hunting, fishing, picking berries and mushrooms, too.
