They settled in Edmonton with her interests being a devoted mother to her children.
Philomena grew up in Dublin Ireland in a large Catholic family of 10 siblings who greatly enjoyed each other's company so much so that many family members including her parents John & Margaret Fleming also immigrated to Canada.
