Maureen Grace Valentine

September 4, 1955 - January 8, 2016


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandma, aunt and friend Maureen. She was born in Powell River and grew up on Joyce Avenue.

From a very young age, Maureen loved horses and spent time walking up to Wildwood to ride and care for them and then walked all the way back to Westview. She spent many years involved with Powell River Trail Riders Club and had a great love of animals.

Maureen would always help someone in need, lend an ear and give good advice. She worked in a shelter for women and children on the coast and more recently worked as a care aid for home support and then as a home-support scheduler in Powell River. She was a survivor and a fighter, surviving two battles with breast cancer. We lost her so suddenly, but we will always remember her laugh, her caring nature and her sense of humour and wit.

Maureen was predeceased by her parents Mary and Thomas Welsh and her brother Richard Welsh. She leaves behind her daughter Melanie Valentine, son Richard (Sara) Valentine and grandchildren “Grandma’s little angels” Xander, Mavrick and Bryce, brother Robert Welsh, numerous nieces and nephews and her many friends. Also left behind are Maureen’s little Jack Russell Terrier (Axle) and the horse (Kas) she shared with her daughter.

A celebration of life will be held at Carlson Community Club on Saturday, February 20, at 1:30 pm.

Love you, miss you, and you’ll forever be in our hearts and memories, Mom.
