In early days Aune owned and operated a hot dog and hamburger stand in Garson, later working for Christakos Groceries. Much of her time was spent working with her husband, Niilo at their many construction projects, specially building the cottage at Lake Wahnapitae in 1954, and called it “Work Haven”. She enjoyed fishing, all crafts, cards, curling, was a fan of the Toronto Blue Jays and knitted toques for cancer patients, mitts, slippers, scarves and socks for all her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Thank you to Finlandia nursing staff and a special thank you to the nurses in Kuusi for their kindness and support.
