CAWTHORN, Ramona (Mona)

July 19, 1934 – Brooks, AB
August 1, 2014 – Calgary, AB

It is with unspeakable sadness, but happy memories, that we announce the peaceful passing on August 1, 2014 of our cherished mom and grandma Mona Cawthorn.

Mona was born in Brooks, Alberta on July 19, 1934, then moved to Calgary as a little girl and lived in her beloved city for the rest of her life. She will be deeply missed by her children Irene (Julian), Norene (Jerry), Steven, and Sandy (Albert). Her greatest joy was her grandchildren who loved her with all their hearts: Andrew, Paul (Re-Anna), Kelly, Hayley, Nicki and Colin. She was also a proud great-grandmother to Hunter and Isabella.

Mona also leaves to mourn a sister Aloha Douglas and brothers Jack, Bill, and David Matheson, and a very large extended family. She was predeceased by her former husband Ben Cawthorn, parents Marguerite and Charles Matheson, sister Eileen Watt and brothers Donnie, Jim, Al, and Tom. Her dearest friends Margaret Schaap and Kay Fillion also passed away before her.

Mona was a wonderful mother and homemaker who took loving care of her family. She later worked at the Calgary Professional Club for more than twenty-five years, where she made many friends. She was extremely compassionate and kind to everyone she met. She had a delicious sense of humour and was loved by all of her nieces and nephews and children’s friends who thought she was so ‘cool’. Mona enjoyed reading, gardening and was a huge fan of the Calgary Flames and Stampeders. She loved to attend and watch games with her family.

A Celebration of Mona’s life will be held at the Rutland Park Community Association, (3130 40 Ave S.W., Calgary, AB) on Saturday, August 16, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If so desired, donations may be made in her memory to the MS Society, Calgary Area Chapter, Suite 150, 110 Quarry Park Blvd SE, Calgary, AB T2C 3G3.

In living memory of Ramona Cawthorn, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

    I would like to send my deepest sympathy to the family of Mona. My mom (Carmen), and I worked with Mona at the Calgary Professional Club. I worked with her for about 5 years while my mom worked with Mona for 15 years and considered her not only a friend but part of the family. She will be greatly missed and our hearts go out to you for your loss.
