Dear Janet and family, I am so proud that I had got to know your mom even if it was just a short time. Her smile and determination even in the toughest of times warms my heart. The love she had for her family when we talked was so special. You are in my heart and prayers. Your mom was a very special person to me. I will miss her dearly.

Dear Larry, Susan, Janet, Laura and all of your beautiful family, no words can tell you how sorry I am for your loss and heartbreak. Maureen was one of the most beautiful people I have had the privilege of knowing and being able to call friend. I worked with Maureen at the old Oakville hospital many years ago. We made and celebrated wonderful memories during our time together there. Lots of laughter, but also love and support for each other through the sad and difficult times at the hospital. We worked on a very busy unit and Maureen was my lifeline. She has made a difference in so many peoples lives. Maureen’s love for Larry and her girls shone from her heart. They have always been her pride and joy. To say that Maureen has been loved is an understatement. She has been cherished by her family and friends.

With our deepest love and condolences,

Mary, Michael Kieran & Daniel

To Sue and your family,

I am very sorry for your loss. I hope you remember Maureen with love and fondness and cherish all the special moments you had together.


I'm so very sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. We worked together for years at the hospital. So many fond and wonderful memories of her. She had such a good sense of humor. I took over her job when she moved to Parry Sound. Have lots of wonderful pictures to remember her. She was a dear friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. xoxo

Maureen was born in England, the daughter of Jack and Lila, and until she moved to Canada we shared a close relationship enjoying outings, Christmas celebrations, birthdays and all the communal activities of childhood. Our lives changed when Maureen emigrated to Canada. The link never closed and over the years there were visits to England and visits to Canada. I went to Maureen’s wedding in Canada and spent a splendid two weeks there. There were endless visits between us. As we got older that became more difficult but Maureen’s daughter, Susan, has continued the tradition and we cherish her visits. Maureen and I emailed one another sharing family news but of course the hardest news was to learn of Maureen’s cancer. What a sad time and what a brave lady. Our thoughts are with Larry Sue Janet and Laura and all the grandchildren.
RIP dear Maureen,
Love Di, Alan and family

To the Anderson Family, I knew your Mum while working at Oakville Hospital, I was 25 and getting Married, My sister who was 16 was coming so I asked around if anyone had a daughter the same age, Maureen said I do, I said can I borrow her!
So Sue & My Sister Clare have remained in touch ever since. That’s what it was like at OTMH a family we helped each other out. Maureen was always a sweetheart . Loss is hard especially your Parents. Thinking of you all at this very sad time,Love & Hugs to you all.
