It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Maureen Schwab, after a long and courageous battle with cancer on the evening of December 7, 2019.
She was a fantastic Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother and will always be lovingly remembered by her sons; Dale and Dan, grandchildren; Jeremy (Alisha) and Steffi, and great-grandchildren; Kash, Kade, Prix, Paris, Siraya, Lyric, and Zyanya, as well as her faithful Border Collie companion Katie.
Mom was predeceased by her husband, Elmer and granddaughter, Alana.
Maureen loved her farm and all the aspects of living in the country. She has dedicated many years of service in different aspects of both the local community and the province of Alberta as well. She spent a term as the Reeve of the MD of Brazeau and held the position as Councillor for several terms. She was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Provincial Natural Resources Conservation Board (NRCB) and was a member of the Agricultural Services Board for several terms as well. Through her spirited and unrelenting passion to make her community and province a better place, she was involved with many campaigns and committees to evoke this change. She has made many close friends and colleagues along the way and will always be remembered as both a loyal and dedicated friend.
In keeping with Mom’s wishes, a private family service will be held at a later date.
