So sorry to hear this news, we were lucky enough to spend some great trips out with her and Uncle Arthur with our boys when they visited England so many years ago. I will never forget as a teenager receiving ice skates from them both. A truly lovely lady, our condolences to the family.

Geof, Mike and Ron,
We were sorry to learn about your mother’s passing.
Aunt Mona was indeed a very special lady. Family was important to her.
After Mom had passed away, She made sure Dad would have dinner once a week at her home and then after he moved to a retirement home, she phoned him regularly to make sure he was okay.
Her kindness and thoughtfulness will not be forgotten.

So sorry to hear about Mona… she was a very special lady who was a very big part of my childhood. I’ll forever remember the smell of toast when we walked into her house in the mornings, the regular trips to Jim’s and the way she’d always keep her nails perfectly filed. I have so many memories that I’ll hold near & dear to my heart.
Thanks Mona! Give Artie a hug for us oxo

I remember the first time I saw Mona, it was at my grandparents home in Holstein, she had a mauve suit on and she was George’s
Her husband Art (dinger) lived with us and he got teased about this beautiful girl…..Dinger went back to England and Mona followed. They where married in England and back to Canada where they built a home for three boys. Wonderful memories of this beautiful lady God Bless
