Mom was born on April 14, 1930, the daughter of Henry “Harry” Hyland and Hannah “Toutie” McGuey Hyland. She was predeceased by her five (5) siblings: sister Margaret (Joseph) LaCombe, brothers Dennis (Evelyn) Hyland; Clifford Hyland; Henry “Hank” (Mary) Hyland; and Gordon Hyland. She was the mother of Mario Hyland, Moira (Brad) Roberts, and grandmother of Hannah Dannenberg.
Thank you to all those who enriched Mom’s life with your friendship, love and support through visits, and phone calls. A fiercely independent person, Mom sacrificed much to ensure her beloved children would succeed in life. As a sports enthusiast – Mom was very proud of completing a 34 Mile Walkathon; she enjoyed watching (and attending) Leafs Hockey, and Blue Jays games. A longtime resident of Barry’s Bay, she found her way back there for her retirement years (residing at the Water Tower Lodge). More recently she lived at a retirement home in Orillia, ON.
