She was always bright and inquisitive as the fourth of eight children and would have gone beyond her grade eight education had she been given the opportunity.  She had a great life growing up.  Aino married Antero on October 28, 1951, in Copper Cliff (near Sudbury) Ontario.

Aino's hard work and commitment led by example to her two daughters who blessed her with fourteen grandchildren and they have
all followed her path. The  family would like to thank the Palliative Care Unit for their kindness in the last few days of her life.
