WOLOSHEN, BASIL AND SADIE Submitted by Sadie (1983-1999)

I am writing some history about my family and myself. I have 8 children to write about. I am very fond of my family and try and keep in touch with all of them one way or another. As I don't drive, I have to depend on others. Travelling for me is usually the Greyhound Bus. I worked at Johnson's Cabins at Wasagaming for many years. At the time, I had 5 children going to school, so I was a busy person as there was always lots to do.

Marlane, my oldest daughter, moved to Alberta at an early age. Marlane married David Muray from Ashmont, AB. Marlane and David both are employed at St. Joseph's
