Maureen DeReus

January 25, 2020
Aged 68 years, Maureen deReus passed away peacefully on January 25th, 2020 after a very long battle with cancer. She is predeceased by her adoring mother Madeleine Hepburn, and her loving husband of 42 years, Josh deReus. She is lovingly remembered by her daughters Katie (Michael Gran) and Ann-Michelle (Matty Johnston), her grandchildren Elijah, Joey, Katy, Willem and Locke, and her siblings Lea, Michelle (Mike), Elana (Alan), Darren and Grant Murray as well as Mary and Deb deReus. She was very grateful for her community of loving family and friends, in particular Debbie Teit & Beth Harris.
Maureen is beloved by everyone in our family, a true matriarch. She brought people together, squashed arguments with her wisdom, wit and humour, and had a vocabulary to challenge any thesaurus. Maureen loved reading, animals, and researching health science and medicine. Over 30 years of her life were spent loyally caring for her family on 200A street in Brookswood. Maureen will be remembered as wildly smart, generous, patient, kind, loving and compassionate.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Langley Seniors Resource Centre on April 5, 2020 from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm. The celebration is open to any family or friends who want to attend. In true Maureen fashion, everyone is welcome and the door is always open.
