In preparation for retirement in 1994, Hope and Gord set off on a new entrepreneurial endeavour and Face-Off Sportscards was born. Come for the cards, stay for the abuse, was pretty much Hope's motto about life. When not working at the store, which she loved, her hobbies included weekly Bridge Club, reading mysteries, WWF Wrestling with Robbie, shopping with Meghan and of course the Downs will have to retire a VLT machine or two in her memory. Family was the most important part of Hope's life and she was very proud of her children and their accomplishments. As she always said "I'm bringing up my children just the way they wanted me to".
A very special thanks to friends, who were a constant support and source of much laughter, especially Lori and Marion. Thank you also to the medical staff at the Grace Hospital ICU and CancerCare units who provided her and her family with comfort through a very difficult time.
