She spent most of her childhood summers in Morrisburg, Ontario with her older sister Sara Jane and her Aunt Sadie and Jane Dillen. Mom has many memories of swimming in the St. Lawrence River during her summers as a child.
Libby’s family moved frequently due to her father John being a bank manager. They finally settled in the Zurich area where she met her husband Frank where they farmed and raised their family.
Libby was one of Elvis Presley’s biggest fans and was an official member of the Elvis Presley Fan Club. She loved spending time at the beach with her family and friends and took great pride in her home and gardens. She was a very kind, generous and loving woman. Some of our fondest memories with our mom were family gatherings and holidays where she always made everything so special and fun. Those memories, we will cherish forever.
In keeping with Libby’s wishes, she will be laid to rest in Morrisburg, Ontario beside her mother and father on Oct 21, 2023. There will be no formal services. In lieu of this, please share any memories you have about Libby on the Haskett website.

We are so honored to have had such a wonderful woman in our lives. Even though you are no longer with us, you will be in our hearts forever. We will see you on the beach for a picnic someday mom……
