SPERO, Maureen - August 27, 1969 - July 14, 2021
Maureen, affectionately known as Moe to her family and friends, passed away unexpectedly on Lake Rousseau, near her cottage, in a place that brought her incredible peace and happiness.
Born in Sarnia, daughter to Rosella Spero and Stephen Spero (deceased), she is survived by her children Heather, Lucas and Jackson Wiley. She will be missed by her sisters Laura Spero, Katherine Spero, Lynda Kiriakakos (husband Peter) and her twin sister Heather Angelo (husband Dustin). From the day her three beautiful babies were born, Moe was first and foremost a mother.
She was a natural mom with her gentle spirit and calming demeanour.
As the kids grew up, Moe participated in all their activities.
With her compassion and gentle nature, Moe was an exceptional teacher and personal trainer. She just recently finished her diploma for Addictions Counseling and was intent on focusing her efforts on kids in distress and helping them with coping skills. Moe was charming, magnetic and could light up a room with her infectious smile and sense of humour.
She loved her music and would often start dancing wherever and whenever and within moments, her kids would fall into sync. Heather, Luke and Jackson were all too familiar with their Mom's (robotic) moves and spontaneity.
Wherever she went, her positive spirit and energy drew people to her, while her thoughtfulness and caring nature kept her in their hearts forever. She had the quickest wit on earth and truly loved everyone in her life. Moe was a loyal friend who loved unconditionally. She was so beautiful inside and out.
Maureen had the Grace of an Angel and will remain with us forever in spirit. She is peacefully reunited with her father, Stephen Spero, her friend Janet, and her beloved pooches, Bella, Gracie, and Molly.
A private funeral service took place on Friday, July 23rd. The family will be hosting a Celebration of Life at a future date.
In lieu of flowers, and on behalf of Heather, Luke and Jackson, donations to the Legacy of Hope Foundation (LHR), a national Indigenous charitable organization would be appreciated.
The LHF supports the ongoing healing process of Residential School Survivors, and their families and seeks their input on projects that honour them. https://legacyofhope.ca/english/get-involved/donate/.
