With sadness, the McGuire family announces the passing of Maureen McGuire in Quesnel, British Columbia.
Maureen was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, educated in Hanley, Saskatoon and Prince Albert, and attended Saskatoon Normal School. Following a year of teaching at Gronlid, she attended St. Thomas More College in Saskatoon, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Saskatchewan.
She taught school in Calgary, Alberta, and attended painting and drawing classes at the University of Calgary. After returning to Saskatchewan and teaching briefly at Swift Current, she relocated to northern British Columbia.

We thank Maureen’s friends and the staff at Dunrovin Park Lodge in Quesnel, who provided her with companionship and care for the past several years.
