web_pickard maureenIt is with profound sadness, after a valiant struggle with a neurological disease, we announce the passing of our sister, aunt and friend, Maureen “Moe” Pickard, December 10, 2014 at 67 years of age. Favourite daughter of the late Garnet & Marcella Pickard. Much loved sister of Jim Pickard (Nicole) of New Brunswick, Larry Pickard (Rachelle) of Ottawa, Margot Herkes (John) of Michigan, Jo-Anne Treverton (Rob), Mary-Lou Hansen (Jamie) and Michelle Desmarais (Kevin). Cherished aunt to Michael Gelinas (Nathalie(Jessie)Jaydon)Treena, Maxime)), Jim (Paula(Kevin & Amy)) Pickard, Sherri (Ray(Matthew & Jeremy)) McLaughlin, Tina (Peter(Catrina)) Duguay, Jason (Stacey (Haylee)) Pickard, Joel (Cindy (Jordan)) Pickard, Renee (Peter (Geena & Paige)) Furtner, Andrea (Ron (Devin & Jordan)) Pumphrey, Cori Herkes (Howard Carver (Logan & Keegan)), Scott Herkes (Cody Tucker(Sawyer)), Ryan Treverton (Rochelle Langlois), Derek Treverton, Erin Gouin (Jason (Rae & Samuel)), Ashley Hansen Rebner (Eric (Norah & Kenley )), Adrian Hansen, Adam Hansen (Amanda Campbell), Jessie Bondy (Jenn (Ciara)), Brandi Bondy and Joel Bondy. Sister-in-law to the late Carolyn Lee Pickard. A great friend to Mary and Candy. Maureen was a dedicated teacher and coach for the Windsor Separate School Board. Maureen stayed after hours to coach basketball, volleyball, gymnastics & track and field. After retiring from teaching, to stay healthy and active, Maureen delivered 3 morning paper routes and volunteered for various organizations. Maureen was a very giving and generous person, always looking out for the other guy. A tribute to Maureen would be to commit a “random act of kindness” with a smile. If so desired, donations can be made to the MS society. We wish to thank the dedicated staff at Extendicare Tecumseh, especially the Lakewood and Oldcastle houses, for their compassionate care and friendship. Heartfelt thanks to Maureen’s private caregivers, Amanda, Corrine, Eleanore, Priscilla and Jessica.
