Sones, Maureen Patricia on January 25, 2020, in her 98th year said her final farewell surrounded by her loved ones.
Born in Dublin, Ireland September 27, 1922. Upon the death of their young mother, Maureen and her two sisters Paddy and Joan grew up in a convent in Monaghan, Ireland. She joined the WRENS at the beginning of WW II. In 1952, along with her young son David, sister Paddy, brother-in-law Robert and their daughter Deirdre emigrated to Canada. Maureen met, fell in love and married Ben Sones. They added to their family a daughter Maureen Elizabeth. Maureen began a new career as a dental assistant for 33 years and retired at age 72. She continued to volunteer at Credit Valley Hospital for 6 years. Her faith and church life were her foundation. Her joy, generosity and kindness was felt by everyone who knew her. Exuding positivity, no one was a stranger in her presence for long; never to be forgotten was her sassy sense of humour.
We would like to thank Dr. Andrew Ng for all the many years of excellent care, palliative care team at Trillium Health Partners C Site, St. Peter's Hospital with a special thanks to Dr. Taniguchi, Deborah, Aruna and all the staff.
