Maureen Edith Anne Wilkinson
December 11, 1944 ~ December 9, 2016
Maureen was born in Taumarunui, New Zealand to Thomas and Hazel Wilkinson. She immigrated to Canada in 1970. She was one of 14 children. Maureen is survived by her twin daughters, Kyna (Allan) Gibbons and Kama (Gregory) Hicks, and her beloved grandchildren, Kirstin, Robert, Aidan, Hunter and Taylor, and Colin and Riley. Maureen was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Hazel Wilkinson. Maureen brought considerable joy and laughter to all she knew. She lived out her last few years in much pain and illness, but she always managed to have a smile and enjoy her time with her precious family and friends. She was an avid member of the Red Hat Society (Abby Scarlett O’Hatters chapter) and a local book club. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Medicine Shoppe and Fraser Health for their kindness and care, and the wonderful, hard-working staff at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. A Celebration of Life will be held in Abbotsford on December 30, 2016 at 2:00 pm. If you would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to your local food bank.
