STEWART, Maureen Rosalia
1934 - 2012
Maureen passed away peacefully on Friday, November 2nd, 2012 at Laurel Place Hospice in Surrey at the age of 78. Born in North Vancouver, Maureen lived a life full of fond memories: babysitting her little brother on the beaches of Penticton; raising three children; working as a medical receptionist for over thirty years; and of course, family gatherings surrounded by grandchildren whom she held dear to her heart.
A woman of strong conviction, Maureen loved meeting new people. Her strength and determination, along with her sense of humour, were with her until the very end.
Maureen will be missed by her treasured friends, her family spread across Canada, and especially by Gord, her husband of 37 years. Maureen felt comfort knowing that her eldest son and mother were waiting for her on the next part of her journey.The family would especially like to thank the staff at Laurel Place Hospice. Over the last five months you treated Maureen with dignity, care, and compassion and helped make her last days peaceful. You truly are exceptional people.
There will be no service by request. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the charity of your choice. Maureen, Chic, Mom, Auntie, Grandma - we will miss you.
