It is with Great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Mona at the age of 81 with her loving husband Gordon by her side. Mona is survived by her husband and best friend Gordon of 55 years; sister Sandra (Herb) Poile of Calgary.

Mona was born and raised in the Erlton area of SE Calgary and attended her school years in Calgary.

She taught at the Calgary Public School Board for 35 years primarily elementary grades. Initially with Le Roi Daniels in Fairview and then Alice M. Curtis in Acadia.
