She came to Canada in 1945 and worked her way across from Quebec to British Columbia. While working as a whistle punk in a logging camp on Vancouver Island she met her second husband and father of her 7 children (W. David “Del” Delahunt).

Dear Duncan and family,
My condolences on the loss of your mother. Though I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person I caught a glimpse of her sparkle through the stories Delaney would tell her Aunt Roz and I. I hope you are all comforted by your memories of her.
