Joanne Whitelaw, daughter of the late June Newton, sent us an e-mail telling us that her mother’s friend and fellow nursing sister Maxine Bredt, had recently received a Quilt of Valor. Maxine, a graduate of the Royal Jubilee Hospital served with her classmate June at hospitals in Italy and England during World War II.
The mission of the Quilt of Valour Society is “to ensure that injured Canadian Forces members are recognized for their service and commitment to our country. We give this support through the presentation of quilts to comfort our past and present Canadian Forces members.” To learn more about the Society visit https://www.quiltsofvalour.ca/about-qovc.html
Maxine was thrilled and honored to receive a quilt. Joanne plans to visit her mother’s friend later in the month and will share more pictures with us.
