Maxine Urquhart of Calgary, AB, passed away on August 21, 2018 at the age of 87 years.

Maxine was born in Aneroid, SK on September 27, 1930 to Maxwell and Mary Cosgrove. As a child, she lived in several places, including Port Arthur, ON, today known as Thunder Bay.

Maxine was a stay at home mom to her family but enjoyed bowling, knitting and travel. Maxine spent many winters as a snowbird in Phoenix with family and friends, and she also travelled extensively enjoying a multitude of cruises to numerous ports around the world.

Maxine is survived by her daughter, Joanne; her two sons and daughters-in-law, Rob and Karen, and Jeff and Andrea; and her grandchildren, Holeigh and Morgan, Josh, Mackenzie and Zack. She was a loving Grandma to her five grandchildren and was very proud of all their achievements.

    I have just learned of your Mom’s passing. I am sorry for your loss. She was one of my Mom’s (Gwen Sorenson) best friends. They had such good times together. We enjoyed visiting with your Mom when we came to Calgary. May you find comfort in your memories of her.
