We were very sorry to learn of your Mom's passing. Miracle Mona was a real fighter until the very end. While it won't seem like it right now your grief & sorrow will pass with time but the good memories you have will last for ever.

Very fond memories of Mona being one of the main supports at Mt. Calvary and a second mother to many. Always a calm smile (well, almost always!) and for sure a steady faith in our Lord. Mona was always the first to step up when something needed to be done, even if it meant joining the men's section of the choir! (Oh, the good old days!)
Mona touched a lot of lives and I'm sure there are many smiles as we sit back and reminisce on the times we spent together. Our condolences to the family. Andy & Sandra

Loved your mom, her dance moves at your (Joan) 60th; her enthusiasm at the Dundas Rotary club Lobster and Ribs Fest; her chili sauce; Christmas cookies, and real sandwiches for lunch. She was always home for your family, which I envied. My hope is that so many memories will help you over this sad time, and always bring a smile to your face. Much love from Ursula

The sweetest woman on the planet. I don't know what my childhood would have been like without her in it. "An angel gets her wings".
My sincere condolences to the family.
