MONA DRIVER (published on January 17, 2009)

MONA DRIVER 1913 - 2009 Mona Driver, nee Bailey, died peacefully at Calvary Place Personal Care Home on Monday, January 12 at the age of 95. Mona was born in Winnipeg; one of two brothers and three sisters, whom are all deceased. She moved to Swift Current and then to Vancouver until the age of 10, when she returned with her family to Winnipeg where she lived the rest of her life. On leaving Daniel McIntyre High School, she joined the City Auditor's Office and became secretary to the City Auditor. It was here where she met her much-loved husband Vivian, who in turn, became the City Auditor. Mona had one daughter, Janice who has resided in England since her marriage in 1968. Mona and Viv visited their daughter and her family in England annually for many years. In her younger days Mona was very socially active, helping the blind in a voluntary capacity, working at the Blood Donor Clinic, and with her husband delivered Meals on Wheels. She took great pleasure in square dancing, an interest she shared with her husband. They enjoyed many happy years with the Cardinal Eights in River Heights. She will be remembered with love and lasting affection by her daughter Janice and family (Bernard, Claire, Christopher, Redmond, Charlotte and Thomas), her cousin June Jackson and family, Heather and George Powell and family, and all her friends both in England and in Winnipeg. Special thanks to the first floor staff of Calvary Place for their care and compassion of Mona. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Mona's memory to Calvary Place. A Memorial Service will be held on Mona's birthdate, March 24, 2009, at 1:30 p.m., at Calvary Place, 1325 Erin Street, Winnipeg. Chapel Lawn 885-9715
