Mona, eldest daughter of Elgin and Jean (nee Henderson), was born and raised in Keady, Ontario. In 1949, she married Bruce and they built a home on Maple Lane in Unionville. They enjoyed traveling and tending to their large vegetable gardens and she enjoyed hanging the laundry at home and at the cottage on Canal Lake.
Mona took great pride in caring for her husband, children, and home. Mona enjoyed baking and loved when someone brought her something sweet to enjoy. Mona was an avid card player and enjoyed playing bid euchre with family and friends at the Markham Lawn Bowling Club and Rouge Valley. She will be missed dearly and lovingly remembered by those who knew her.
The family wishes to extend their gratitude to all of the staff at Chartwell Rouge Valley in Markham for their kindness and compassion in caring for Mona.
