    Georgenna my mother graduated with Maureen from the Regina General Hospital of Nurses. She is sad from the passing of a dear friend and wishes to tell you of her empathy for the family at this time. She is computer illiterate so she could not send this message herself but asked me to send it for her.
    May your family be close in love and remembrance.
    Georgenna Ferguson and her son Douglas.

    Aunt Maureen will always be fondly remembered by me for her energy, great quick laugh, her raspy voice and her caring manner when our family was passing through Calgary to Katepwa or when we were all at Katepwa.
    I will miss her.

    We will always remember Aunt Maureen fondly. She was quick witted and had the most engaging giggle. She loved being a Welsh and a Hill and was blessed with a long marriage to Uncle Don Hill. She brought us up to speed on Dr. Welsh and Ethel , his wife. I learned things about medicine in the 20th century that I didn’t know from Aunt Maureen. She loved her family and was close to them even though separated by distance. They were in her heart. She always brightened our day when she called and really shone when she visited with us, on her way through to Bermuda. She also was a long term golfer (god bless her). May she enjoy socializing in heaven with all of our loved ones. Cam and Sharon Welsh (Brampton, Ontario)
