STUART-SHEPPARD, Maureen (nee JOHNSTONE)  - 1926 - 2018  Maureen passed away suddenly at Lakeridge Health Ajax as a result of a fall, with family by her side, on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 in her 92nd year.

She was the beloved wife of the late Ivor and devoted mother of Peter and his wife Pat and Rick and his wife Tracy.

Loving grandmother of Leah, Sophie, Alexandra, Katie, Robert (Bobby) and Rosemary. Dear sister of Dr. Brian Johnstone and the late Ailsa Shuttleworth.

She will be lovingly remembered by the rest of her family and many friends. Maureen was born in Mt. Gambier, Australia.

As a young girl she immigrated to England with her parents and siblings.

Working as a nurse in London she met and married Ivor. In 1966 they immigrated to Canada with their two young sons, eventually settling in Ajax. Maureen worked in Human Resources at the Ajax Pickering Hospital from 1968 until her retirement in 1993. She and Ivor were active in both St. Francis de Sales and St. Bernadette's parishes in Ajax. Maureen and Ivor enjoyed travelling, researching family history, music and dancing and their growing family of grandchildren.

A memorial Funeral Mass will be held at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, 1001 Ravenscroft Rd., Ajax on Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 at 10:30 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation, or a CHARITY of your choice would be appreciated.

Special thanks to her generous circle of caring friends who gave her love, support and affection over the past years.
