Maureen Frances Gaines (nee Lambert)

November 9, 2019

May 2, 1943 - November 9, 2019
Maureen passed away suddenly on November 09, 2019 after a traumatic fall. Maureen was born on May 02, 1943 in Rossland, BC.
She is survived by her son Tim from Edmonton, Alberta; 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 women, wife and mother. She has always shown incredible organization 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, November 16, 2019 at the Catholic Church of Saint George in Barriere, British Columbia. Please see the post office notices for a service time and more details.
