Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
My sincere condolences to the children and family. I worked with Maureen often in the past years. She was such a source of knowledge in Mental Health and a great mentor. I will miss her. - Posted by: Barbara Bruske (Co-worker) on: Dec 06, 2022
Condolences to Maureen's family. When I'd meet Maureen in the hallway or out in the parking lot at work, it was always a pleasure to say hello and share a few comments. Gosh she was a hard and thorough worker in the mental health arena. Maureen served so many people in her long career. She will be missed for sure. - Posted by: Jane Carruthers (Co- worker at 755 Portage) on: Nov 30, 2022
Jeff, Jolene and Family: I was very saddened to hear about Maureen's untimely passing. I first met Maureen many years ago while working at the WRHA and we remained in touch throughout the years. Maureen was known by her colleagues as a very passionate and hard worker, who would do anything in her power to assist her clients and her co-workers. Maureen would speak fondly of her children and grandchildren and was always excited for the opportunity to see her family. Maureen will be missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing her. Her quick wit and sense of humour made difficult work easier. During this very difficult time, please accept my sincere condolences. Rest Easy Maureen.

Our whole team is feeling this loss. Maureen worked with us in Mental Health for many years. She was a supportive colleague and mentor, taking on many Social Work Students over the years and shepherding newer, less experienced staff into their roles. Maureen was committed to her clients and was able to develop rapport and trust with individuals who faced many barriers. Our whole HATSS team would like to pass on our condolences to her family and friends. She was so proud of her children and grandchildren.

Jeff and Jolene - we are so sorry to hear about your Mom. We met your Mom in Powerview and became friends. One day I had just got to her house for coffee and there was red sauce on the ceiling because her pressure cooker lid released and hit the ceiling. We laughed but it was a mess and poor her, she was pregnant for you Jeff. When Gilles and I got married your Mom was my Maid of Honor. Another time living in Wpg. She threw a surprise baby shower for me, we were supposed to be going to a show but we had to run back to her house because she forgot something and all the member's wives were there. I am at this moment sitting in the rocking chair they gave me...I use it every day. We lost contact after Thompson for many years but we reconnected about 5 years ago and caught up and she filled me in on you kids and her grandkids and her travels. I was going through cancer then COVID hit so we never got our visit. The last few times I tried to reach her I assumed she was visiting you kids and now I realize she must’ve gotten sick by then. Your Mom always smiled and laughed and I loved her red hair it suited her personality. She was so proud of you kids and her grands and she adored you. Again our Condolences to you all - Posted by: Dianne and Gilles Guertin (Friend ) on: Nov 27, 2022
I first met Maureen when she hosted a bridal shower for me in 1976. Her mom Aunt Lena often talked of Maureen’s accomplishments as an LPN, a mom and a social worker. Her mom and my late mother in law Gladys were friends as well as sister in laws. And Uncle Paul and Bryne always had a good visit together. Maureen offered to drive me and Gladys to the cemetery in St. Amelie in 2019 and 2020 so she could visit and trim the grass around the headstone of her mom, while we were visiting our husbands graves. Maureen also phoned her aunt Gladys and visited her during covid. I remember Maureen as being very pleasant, happy and easy to talk to. She loved to talk about her visits to her children and grandchildren. Maureen May you Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Mary Verhaeghe (My late husband Bryne and Maureen were first cousins.) on: Nov 26, 2022
