Maude worked for many years at Conestoga College in Guelph. Young at heart and rich in years, she was a strong, gentle lady who easily embraced changes, with no complaints. Her positive attitude, easy smile and teasing sense of humour is a legacy to us all.
There will be a celebration of life for family members and friends at a date yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the MS Society of Guelph.
