Mona had a passion and love for bingo and everyone who knew her knows that. She spent her last years playing at Top Hat Bingo where she met many new friends. On January 18, which would have been her 66 birthday, cake will be served in her honour during Top Hat Bingo’s Intermission. Please come spend the evening in her memory and join us playing Bingo.

“I admired her not for her smile though it was beautiful.
Not for her eyes, though they shone brightly.
I admired her for her battle scars and war wounds
that she displayed proudly for the world to see.
I admired her for her strength and courage.”

Honoured to serve the family is

REV. BLAINE SCHAUFELE

A few short weeks ago, Rev. Blaine Schaufele’s life was remembered through a celebration held at Fifth Avenue Memorial United Church. Numerous clergy from within the community came together at the end of the service and shared their blessings on Reverend Schaufele, his family and the many friends present. A truly beautiful memory for all those in attendance.

He was a friend to many,
And to others, so much more,
His presence felt forever,
Looking down through heavens door.

His Life Lived…
His Life Cherished…
His Life Honoured.
