OWEN, Maureen Helen (nee Senior) - Passed away peacefully on August 13, 2013 in her 79th year at Sunnybrook Hospital after a dignified battle with cancer. Predeceased by Trevor Maclean Owen, her husband of 53 years. Mother of Meredith Maclean Stanford (nee Owen) and mother- in-law to John Stanford. With gratitude to her niece Daphne Beauroy for looking after the family in so many ways. Born February 24, 1934, Maureen was the daughter of Morris and Helen Senior. She was educated at Branksome Hall in Toronto. Maureen was a gifted figure skater and Canadian Champion in 1949. She continued to grow her passion for the sport by becoming a skating coach. She had many National and International students. She retired from active coaching in 2003 but always remained close to the sport. Maureen loved to travel and spend the winter months in Florida and Barbados. Maureen will be fondly remembered for her great love of animals, her quick wit and dry sense of humour. Many thanks to the Vitalis Staff at Amica Bayview Gardens and the entire Palliative Care team at Sunnybrook K1East for their outstanding compassionate care. Special thanks to Dr. Nuns-Vaz and Dr. Monavari. Private family cremation has taken place. Donations in memory of Maureen can be made to the World Wildlife Fund (www.wwfcanada.org).
