Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Dear Frank and Lynda I am truly saddened to hear of the death of your sister Maureen. I had the privilege of working with Maureen at MB Finance helping seniors and others preparing their tax returns. We got to know each other over coffee breaks, rides home and coffee at her house where she always had a little something extra for my kids. She was a lovely, kind and caring person and friend. Don and I extend our best regards to all of her family. Melene - Posted by: Melene Sechman (Friend) on: Feb 26, 2023

  • Our sincere condolences to Maureen's family from the Rumls. The Koblanskis were very close friends of our parents. We were neighbors on Byars Bay in East Kildonan. There were lots of get togethers and we had lots of fun hanging out during that time. The connections continued even after my family moved to Texas. Maureen and I got closer volunteering together running the Young Program at St Alphonsus Church. She was incredibly kind and caring. She had a fun loving attitude. She will be missed.
