Rolly Higgins married Georges Ricard on August 31, 1957. They moved their family from Montreal to British Columbia in 1967 where they proudly raised 5 children together.
Mum loved to cook and spent many years cooking at local restaurants as well as her own catering business.
Rolly was a member of the Legion, Moose Lodge, Eagles and Seniors Center. She was the founder and president of the Mid Island AIDS Society and contributing to her community was very important to her.
Later in life (July 17, 2004), Rolly was blessed with a loving husband, Raymond Jann, although their time was short it was certainly full of fun with family and friends.
The family would like to express their great gratitude to the health care team who made it possible for Mom to be as comfortable at home as she wanted.
Forever remembered by his sons; Daniel, Serger, Claude, Alain, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
