May 26, 1959 - Jan 5, 2013
Maureen, the perfect wife, sister, daughter, aunt and friend, died peacefully at home after a journey through cancer. She is survived by her wife Shannon Hutchinson, brother John and sister-in-law Michelle, best friend Pam, father Jack, brother-in-law Mark and sister-in-law Jen, nephews Christopher, Michael and John, nieces Emma and Isabelle, wonderful maternal aunts and uncles, and many other friends, cousins and colleagues.
I (Shannon) would like to thank all of our friends and family who gave so deeply and endlessly through the last months of Maureen's life. It is also with deep gratitude that I thank Dr. Judith Bus, Dr. Sharon Duncan, Dr. Daphne Lobb, Dr. Karen Gelmon, Nancy Macey and the remarkable staff at Delta Hospice for their care and support. Every wish Maureen and I had, from small to significant, was made possible by the efforts of Catherine and the amazing team at Irene Thomas Hospice.
Mostly, I would like to thank Maureen for guiding us through this journey and our lives with her, with infinite strength and grace. "To the moon and back my love".
A celebration of Maureen's life is planned for a future date to be announced. Donations in memory of Maureen can be made to Delta Hospice or to the "Maureen "MoMo" Roberts" Memory Page of the BC Cancer Foundation.
