MAURICE, Judy. Judy Maurice of Chilliwack, beloved wife of Bill Maurice, passed away on February 17th 2013 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital at the age of 58, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer. Judy is predeceased by her father and mother, John and Mildred Shehowsky. She is survived by her devoted husband of 38 years, Bill Maurice, and adoring daughters Treena and Tanya Maurice.

Judy and Bill would have celebrated their 39th anniversary on February 23rd. Judy was born in New Westminster, but lived in Coquitlam, Langley and Hope, before finally settling in Chilliwack. Her first priority in life was her family, and she always created a wonderful and nurturing home for them. She was an avid animal lover as well, and took in many pets over the years. All who passed through her home were considered to be under her care, and she earned a reputation for ensuring no soul would ever leave hungry. Judy enjoyed traveling with Bill, accompanying him on fishing trips, shopping, attending concerts with her daughters, and cooking, among other hobbies. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Bill, Treena and Tanya would like to give thanks to all the doctors and nurses who attended to her, as well as family and friends who reached out with their support and assistance.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, March 2nd, 2013 at Grace Baptist Church, 949 3rd Avenue, Hope. In memory of Judy and in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
