WOOLLEY, Maureen

My beautiful wife, our loving Mom, Namma, Sister & Auntie left this world after a long and painful battle with cancer. Maureen is survived by husband Albert, daughters Meaghan, Lauren & son Kyle as well as brother Lynn & sister Shannon, seven grandchildren, and numerous friends.

Mo was a talented artist, teacher, and musician and touched the lives of many through her paintings, her words and her creativity. She will be greatly missed but lovingly remembered every time the birds sing. She is resting peacefully and pain free with her parents Joyce & Bill, brother Larry and dog Zues.

Mo will continue to win at scrabble and crib, teach us all to garden, and cheer on all of her grandkids. In lieu of flowers please donate to a charity of your choice.

Sorry, there are no details found...

Mo said one day “we play the cards we are dealt” and Mo played her’s with warmth, grace, kindness and more than a little bit of zippy doo! So grateful to have been part of Mo’s beautiful light and life.

Chan and Lois Hawkins

Some people were put on this earth to bring joy, laughter and a playful sense of whimsy to others’ lives. Mo was one of those unique beings. We will miss her warm friendship very much. But, she will always be with us through memories of great times together and through the art she created and so generously shared with us all.

Shannon

Woolley family,
I’m sorry for the loss, I haven’t seen Mrs. Woolley in years but the time I knew her she was a special lady that was part of a very special family.

Deepest sympathies to all

Doug & Joan Schmidt

Just wanting to send our love, hugs and sincere condolences to all the Woolley family. A mother’s love shapes a family … you were blessed with such love and goodness. You carry on her legacy in all you do and we know how proud she was of her family. May Gods bless you all.

Byron Castine

One of the nicest human beings I have ever met. I visited
Kyle in Edmonton and Kyle had to work, so Mrs Woolley picked me up from the airport. ,
She did her best to make me feel comfortable and made a few jokes that made me smile. I now see where
kyle gets his witty humor and compassion from.
I feel fortunate to have met her, and just so you know Kyle, she made a very positive impact on me so I can’t imagine the impact she had on her friends and family.
I know she is very proud of you Kyle and is looking down us all,
smiling and thinking of something clever that would
make us all
smile.

Babs Game

My heart goes out to Al and family upon Mo’s death.

Even though many years have passed, the memories of Mo that I will hold in my heart will be those of the vibrant eighteen year old I met when we worked together. Mo had a sly sense of humor, a chuckle/ laugh and, at that age, a touch of the rebel in her.

We lost contact, reconnected, lost connect, reconnected many times over the years. If Mo was your friend, she was a friend for life. She was the only one who called me Babs beside my grandma, which I mistakenly told her once. I’m really going to miss hearing that.

May she now, at last, rest In peace

Cath & Ron

Maureen, or Mo as I called her, was a very special friend. I loved her positive outlook and her sense of humour. She was a gifted artist and we are thankful that we have some of her paintings and other works in our home. Mo was also an avid gardener who shared her expertise (and some hostas and irises ) She is missed but the positive impact she had on our lives carries on

Lynne & Ian Pregitzer

Mo has left many sweet memories for us all – especially in her wonderful works of art. Many of us are fortunate to have a piece of Mo’s artistic skills in our homes and we have shared three of our special favorites in this tribute to a splendid woman,

As we walk by our “Mo pictures” we always think of her and share our lives with her.

And every Christmas we shall always be reminded of her love and tenderness as she shared Christmas wishes through her individually made and personalized Christmas cards to our group of friends.

Thank you Mo.

Rick and Heather LaFrance

Al ,, so sorry to hear of Mo’s passing. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Harry Abbink

I met Maureen at the Ottewell Art Club where we traded ideas and jests. What a vibrant and dynamic person she was. I will truly miss her companionship.

Joanne Macaskill

Although I only knew Maureen for a few years, she is someone that has left a significant impact. As part of our painting group, Maureen was always good humoured, willing and eager to tease and poke fun. She was humble in her desire for feedback about her painting although she outshone most of us with her talent and willingness to share suggestions. How she managed to maintain her good humour and to be creative while in constant pain is beyond most of our imaginations. Maureen was very good at diverting attention away from herself by showing interest in others’ lives and families. I will miss the twinkle in her eye and her words of wisdom :”when all else fails, just splatter”!

Jeannie Maloney

So very heartbreaking and sad news losing such a beautiful woman. Maureen , her siblings and mom and dad came to the farm in Saskatchewan every year back in the late 50’s and a lot in the 60’s. She was always so excited to pick the freshly laid chicken eggs. We used to run around bare feet and one day she stepped on a nail and had to go back to Mossbank to have the doctor check it out. We all got a big lecture! But we had fun! I was fortunate enough to visit Al and Mo when they moved to Calgary. It was then that I realized how talented she was and how she always put on a happy face. She will be playing that piano and picking up a paint brush to colour that sky that she was so good at. I certainly hope that Al , Meaghan, Lauren, Kyle and the grandbabies are coping and my thoughts are with you.

Gail Barros and Lois McPherson

We were so sorry to hear of your loss. Our deepest condolences.

Jim & Jan

Maureen was the kindest most patient and generous person we have known. It was a privelage to know her and spend time with her over the years, she will be loved and missed by everyone by all. I am sure the crib board is being kept busy.

Bonnie Mihalchan

I will miss her sense of humour, her kindness, creativity and willingness to help others. I was so fortunate to call her my friend and she will be missed immeasurably. May she rest in peace knowing that she was loved by so many people and that she made a difference in the lives of everyone she touched.
