To you this paean
Work was your life's passion
Never out of season
Born a loving leader
Never a follower
But always cordial
Sharpest of minds naturally
Mayor of efficiency
Mississauga's pride and joy
Never Toronto's decoy

I never heard of her, which is no surprise: I live so far away, but I'm sure she had Hazel eyes...
She was so famous that complete strangers would ask for her autograph no matter where she went. Even in your neck of the woods, Cowboy!
