GAINES, Maureen Frances

Maureen Frances Gaines, 1943-2019. (via Drake Cremation and Funeral Services)

Maureen passed away suddenly on Nov. 9, 2019, after a traumatic fall. Maureen was born on May 2, 1943, in Rossland, B.C.

She is survived by her son Tim from Edmonton, daughter Michelle, brother Pat, and grandchildren Kaylee, Taryn, Rhys, Liam and Lara. Maureen is predeceased by her husband of 50 years, Michael Gaines, in 2015.

In her prime Maureen was a nurse, a job which she took seriously and gave her much pleasure and pride. She has experienced many challenges in her life, the most serious of which was a car accident in 1975. Her stubborn nature and fierce determination helped her find a way to cope with her disabilities and find her place again as a young woman, wife and mother.

She has always shown incredible organisation skills, a strong will and positive attitude to help her find a way forward. Maureen had high energy, never resting for long, and was always quick to find laughter in life’s twists and turns.

In recent months, Maureen found more comfort and security at the Yellowhead Pioneer Residences where she moved in May 2019. It is a shame that she could not have had longer to enjoy life there.

There will be a service to remember Maureen on Saturday, Nov. 16 at the Catholic Church of Saint George in Barriere.

Please see the post office notices for a service time and more details.
