Danny will be fondly remembered by many relatives and friends. Danny was a long time parishioner at St. Margaret Mary Church and a member of the CWL. She was employed at Brown Boggs, Bell Canada and Robinson’s Department store. She was devoted to her family and spoiled them with her pierogi, chrusti and famous Walnut Torte. Although a very modest person, Danny was extremely proud of her family and always put them first…including her furry family (too many pets to mention!) She could give any contestant a run for their money on Jeopardy, was an avid reader and loved her daily crossword puzzles. The family wishes to thank the staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Hamilton for their compassionate care. Much gratitude to Courtney Rojic (Social worker extraordinaire), Dr. Alton, Amy, Emily, Jeff, Donna, Jay, Fatima, Anna and everyon in the ALC, Complex Care and Teaching Units.
