Maureen Gail (Groulx) Dearing, age 68, passed away early in the morning on January 13, 2020. Maureen leaves behind her loving husband of 51 years, Jack Dearing and their children Robert (Kim), Susan (Mark), Michael, and Steven (Rebecca). She will forever be remembered by her nine beautiful grandchildren Eric, Emily, Ethan Dearing; Liam, Cameron, Kaitlyn Hand; Heather, Amberleigh, Bradley Dearing.

Maureen’s life will be fondly remembered by many other special people including her only brother Gary Groulx (Alice), sister-in-law Mary Forest, brother-in-law Elgin Dearing and many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, extended family and friends.

Maureen was predeceased by her parents Marcel and Mabel (Ebel) Groulx, father-in-law and mother-in-law Ed and Janet (Chappel) Dearing, brothers-in-law Don Dearing, Jim Forest and sister-in-law Nancy Dearing.

Maureen was born in Stratford, Ontario, on October 26, 1951. She married Jack, the love of her life, on October 26, 1968 and they farmed in Staffa on Lot 22 concession 6. They had 4 children born between 1970 and 1976 and Maureen treasured her family more than anything. Maureen was given a body that was full of arthritis by age 20 and many other ailments including multiple sclerosis that affected her in her 30’s. She was very active in the community and enjoyed teaching electives and girl guides; sewing, quilting, stamp collecting, and researching the descendants of eight family trees. She loved being married, raising her family, co-owning a couple of home businesses, playing cards and dancing until she couldn’t any longer.

Her family would like to thank and invite everyone who was ever a part of Maureen’s life to come together for a visitation on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at the Lockhart Funeral Home, 109 Montreal St., Mitchell from 2-5 p.m. where the funeral service will be held on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Nancy Knowles officiating. A reception will follow at the Lockhart Reception Centre. Spring interment in Staffa Cemetery. Memorial donations to the MS Society would be appreciated and may be made at
