Gross, Maureen Diane
Maureen Gross, an angel on earth, passed away peacefully on, Monday, September 27, 2021 in her 63rd year, as a result of a gallant fight against brain cancer. Survived by her loving family: husband Frank, children Eric and Michelle, grandchildren Olivia and Nicole, brothers Jim and Briane, and sister Sharron.
Maureen had a spirit for adventure. She loved to travel and was the queen of thrift store finds. She enjoyed the simplicity of a nice walk, whether it be a quick loop around the block or traversing a 133km of the Camino Trail in Spain. Maureen was brilliant, funny and gentle. She could have given any jeopardy contestant a run for their money as she quietly whispered all the correct answers. She was worldly, whimsical and wise.
A life-long learner and lover of Hershey’s chocolate and the beach. Maureen worked as a nurse for 25 years and showed unlimited amounts of compassion for those in need. She was a uniquely special human being, will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by all.
Maureen wishes to be cremated and a celebration of life will be held at a later date. Donations can be made to a charity of your choice or complete a simple act of kindness in her honour. On-line condolences are available through www.mcfarlane-roberts.ca .
Her family would like to thank the incredible nurses, doctors, and staff of UH, Vic and Parkwood Institute as well as everyone else that supported Maureen throughout her battle. Words cannot express our deep gratitude. McFarlane & Roberts Funeral Home, Lambeth (519) 652-2020 in care of arrangements.
