    Growing up, Nan was like my second mother since I seemed to live at the Maitland household almost as much as at home. She always had a good word to say about everyone. She was cheerful and never had a harsh word. My sincerest condolences to Charlie, Chris and Marsha.

    I am so sorry to hear of Nan’s passing, much love to all family during this time. I had the privilege of meeting Nan and seeing her each week. I will forever miss her sweet smile, and cheerful greeting of “good morning Heather.” she was always dressed in style, matched beautifully from head to toe. I always try not to have favourites(but I do). RIP my friend.

    I will miss Nan – and our many shared glasses of wine, and dinners- she was the BEST neighbour anyone could ask for. Meals were shared with class and Nan was always decked out in full fashion! Stories of family and friends were told with chuckles and spirit – and were most entertaining. RIP my sweet friend.

    Sincere condolences to all of Nan’s extended family. I had the pleasure of knowing Nan through various endeavours at the Marsh Street Centre. She was such a lively individual with always a big smile and something positive to say! I know she will be very much missed by all and was very saddened to hear of her passing. Hoping the wonderful memories of time spent with her help you though this difficult period.
