Sept. 5, 1951 - Feb. 3, 2013
It is with sorrow to announce the sudden passing of Maureen Morrison of Comox while touring Thailand with her husband Allan.
She is survived by Allan, sons Jesse Morrison (Bri) of Victoria, Kyle (Sarah) of Chilliwack, grandson Wyatt, sisters Diane, Sharon and Elaine Kennedy, (all of Vancouver), sister-in-law Kathy Hoem of Delta, and well as many nephews & nieces.
Maureen was born (nee Kennedy) in Vancouver, graduated SFU Education, and taught primary level in SD 71 for 34 years. She was to celebrate 40 years in the Comox Valley, and 40 years of marriage to Allan this summer. The last 6 years since retirement were among her happiest, with extensive travel to Mexico, Guatemala, Cuba, Portugal, Thailand, Maritimes & New England, and Arizona area. Maureen is perhaps most defined by her passion for gardening, with love devoted and joy received. 7 months of the year would see her disappear to her prolific garden, followed closely by wintertime photography. The recent birth of her first grandchild was a pivotal point in her pride of family. She will be sadly missed by a community of friends and family.
Please join in a celebration of life this Saturday at 1:30pm at the Crown Isle Resort & Golf ballroom, Courtenay.
