It was with great sadness that I just recently heard of the passing of my good friend, Elizabeth (Grandma) Boyda.
Mrs. Boyda was a regular on the radio birthdays show, often calling in a little earlier to make sure she would be on to wish a friend or relative greetings with her special prayer.
A lot of times I thought she knew everyone in the entire of Northwestern Ontario!
My favourite memories of my friend include the time she climbed all those stairs up to the station to be a part of 50th anniversary open house, and the time I had her as my guest host on the morning show for her birthday, where she shared some of her life adventures.
I feel honoured to have had the time spent with “Liz,” who was one of the unique people who contributed to the history of Rainy River District.
Sincerely missing the “Fort,”
