Nov. 24, 1926 – Sept. 14, 2016
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Mona Waugh on Sept. 14, 2016 at Cumberland Lodge.
She was predeceased by her loving husband of 69 years, Robert, her brothers Karl and Francis, sisters Hazel and Shirley, son-in-law Robert Sharpe. She is survived by daughters Linda, Judy (Bob), sons Stephen, Christopher (Sherri), grandchildren Trevor (Chris), Christina (Jay), Jennifer (James), Brittaney, Molly, step-grandchildren Colleen, Stephen, Richard, Nicholas, Nathan, great grandson Paul.
Mona was born in Dartmouth, N.S. to Lenore and Henry Walsh. She married Robert in 1945 and, after many years moving around Canada with the military, they settled in Comox in 1965. She was very involved in her church family and the social activities with Branch 17 of the “Old Time Fiddlers.” Her favourite hobbies were knitting, sewing, bowling and gardening. She was a loving mother and will be greatly missed by all of her family.
A special thank-you to the caring staff at Cumberland Lodge for the exceptional care they gave Mona over the year she was in their care. Also, we are thankful for Charline Law for the companionship and “fun-times” she spent with mom.
A service was held at Comox Valley Funeral Home, Cremation and Reception Centre, 1101 Ryan Road on Weds., Sept. 21, 2016 at 1:00pm followed by a burial at Courtenay Civic Cemetery. Should friends wish, donations in Mona’s memory to the Bay Community Church or Youth for Christ would be appreciated.
