Piret was an extraordinarily gifted woman who master all things that she turned her hand at, from needlework, gardening, sewing, cooking and house renovations. She started her working life as a florist and later worked at The Bay in Document Management where she made many long lasting friendships. She ended her working life as a gardening consultant returning to her first love of flowers and gardens.
A prolific knitter she would knit hundreds of scarves, mitts and hats a year to give as gifts to the nurses that looked after her mother and later to the nurses that looked after her during her battle with cancer and other patients that she made friends with.
She had a wide range of knowledge and would willing help anyone that asked for her advice. She loved to talk and to have fun. A pet owner since her teen years she had owned many cats and dogs which she cherished. She enjoyed movies, traveling and getting together with her friends and family.
A Memorial service will be held at Centennial Park Conservatory, 151 Elmcrest, Etobicoke on Sunday, May 12 at 10:30am. In lieu of flowers donations to Breast Cancer Society of Canada would be appreciated.
