Daphne was such a lovely person. Always full of fun and good humour. I enjoyed many good times with her at the fitness classes at the Wasaga Y. My heart goes out to her family. Thinking of you all.

Daphne was a very dedicated caring volunteer at the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital. She loved helping others at the Information Desk greeting everyone with her friendly smile and kindness to assist staff, patients and visitors when asked. Thinking of Daphne's family at this difficult time. Our deepest sympathy from Sadie Nixon, volunteers, staff and physicians at CGMH.
