Maxine Marie Pooley

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Maxine Marie Pooley (nee. Zadorozny) on January 26th 2015.

She is survived by her loving family, including her husband Brian Pooley, step-children Christa, Ashley and Tim Pooley, and sister and brother-in-law Erin and Tom Skoropad.

Maxine was born February 23rd 1952 in Thunder Bay Ontario. She loved the arts, becoming a talented gymnast, painter and musician.

She was most passionate about her career as a Registered Nurse; studying at Lakehead School of Nursing, before practicing across Canada. She spent the later years of her career nursing at G.R.Baker Hospital and teaching the LPN program at CNC Quesnel. Max was a strong advocate for her patients and enjoyed teaching the up and coming professionals.

Max was the best “vet” to have around the ranch during the calving season. Her work as a nurse helped support the ranch through fluctuating beef markets. She loved to get into a great mystery or spy novel. Her favorite place to relax would be the patio on Green Mountain with Crystal Creek running by.

If friends should desire, in lieu of flowers, donations to Quesnel Palliative Care and Hospice are encouraged.
