While working at Burns Meat Packing in Vancouver Mavis met the love of her life Bill Wilson. In 1960 Mavis and Bill moved with their first two children to Roberts Creek, eventually settling in Gibsons. Mavis was very active in St. Mary’s Church, belonging to the CWL and teaching Catechism for many years. Even with a large family there was often another plate or two set for family and friends. All where welcomed. Mavis is known for her kindness and love, unless you where playing her in a game of cards and all bets are off.
