Vaike loved to be creative with sewing and 3D art pictures. She loved to bake and cook Estonian dishes. She also loved to go bargain hunting. She showed her love of animals as she had 2 cats and 2 Border Collies.
Vaike worked at Toronto Dominion Bank throughout her working career and held various positions within the company.
Upon retirement after 30 years of service, Vaike enjoyed the cottage life. During that time, she enjoyed hosting gatherings with family and friends. She caught 2 big fish from the lake and it was a thrill of a lifetime!
Vaike had a great sense of humour that would make everyone laugh. She will be remembered as a person who is a joy to see.
Vaike will be dearly missed by everyone. Her memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved her.
