Afton loved traveling the world and sharing her stories with family and friends. She was a caretaker at heart, always caring for family and friends. She was a very talented seamstress and worked many years sharing her talent with the customers of the Best Shop in Magna. She made the most beautiful doilies that she loved to give away. She was a beautician for many years and owned a beauty shop in her basement where she made many lifetime friends. Afton had a talent for cooking and loved to cook for others. As soon as company stepped through her door, she was ready to feed them. We will always remember the advise she gave us about making sure to eat dessert before dinner because you never know when your time will come. Afton enjoyed life to the fullest and was always ready for the next adventure.
