DAVIS, Maureen Francis (nee Bignell)

Passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, with her family by her side, after a courageous 18-month battle with cancer, she was 74.  Maureen was born in Dixie (Mississauga) Ontario, on April 16, 1948, to Joseph and Elma Bignell.  She moved to Huntsville in 1967 with her husband Roy where she worked as a cosmetician.  While in Muskoka, Maureen's love for being outdoors grew.  Every summer she would spend a couple of weeks camping in a provincial park, with Mikisew being her favourite.  In her younger years, you could find Maureen at the baseball diamonds playing the sport she loved.  Later she switched from the ball diamonds to the hockey rinks following her children with figure skating and hockey.  She could often be found volunteering her time raising money for both Minor Hockey as president of fund raising, and Huntsville High School Hockey team.  Maureen was well known in town for her outgoing personality and always made time for anyone who needed to talk or a lending hand.  She always cheered on the underdog.

Maureen is survived by her devoted husband, love of her life Roy, her daughter Verina (Wayne), son Shayne (Angelika) loving grandchildren Caitlyn (Mike), Zackary, Mackenzie, and Jessie, brother Greg and sister Gail.  She was predeceased by her parents Joseph and Elma, sister Lynn and brother Rodney.

Maureen will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

A private funeral will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2023 for Maureen's immediate family only, at Maureen's request.
