Mona Maurice

Maurice, Mona

Mar 24, 1938 – Sept 7, 2006

Mona lived her personal and professional life to the fullest.

She always found a way to surmount obstacles and to go on her path with energy, creativity and enthusiasm. In her long career as a teacher as well as in her personal interactions with her family, friends and strangers she met, Mona taught us to see life positively and to reach for our dreams. A remarkably kind and giving person, Mona will be dearly missed.


Mona laisse dans le deuil ses enfants, Daniel et Jocelyne Bourque de Courtenay; le père de ses enfants, Hermel Bourque de Sherbrooke, Québec; ses petits-enfants, Leif et Mimosa Palmberg de Galiano, C.B. et Waterloo, Ontario; ses soeurs, Albertine, Pierrette et Thèrèse de l’Ontario et de l’état de New York; son frère, Georges de l’Ontario; sa mère, Thérésa de l’Ontario; sa bru, Jen Bowlby de Courtenay; sa bonne amie, Valerie Girard de Courtenay; ainsi qu’un grand nombre de neuveux et nièces, cousins et cousines, oncles et tantes, beaux-frères et belles-soeurs, proches amis au Québec, en Ontario et en Colombie Britannique.


A private ceremony will be held at the family home on Saturday, September 16, in the garden she loved so much. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made, dedicated to research, to the Canadian Cancer Society (1-888-229-8288 ext. 410)
