Pettit, Maureen - passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side on January 18, 2021 at the age of 61. This amazing cancer warrior fought an incredible battle with colorectal cancer for almost 10 years. Maureen was a loving wife to Scott Pettit, dedicated mother to her children Andrea (Jeff) Everest, Melissa (Michael) Holmes, and step mother to Bryon (Jessica) Pettit. Maureen devoted her entire life to her family. The biggest joys were her grandchildren, Morgan and Carter Everest, Mason Holmes, and Eden, Isabella, and Myka Pettit. Survived by her sisters Cheryl Schneider and Judy (Bob) Champagne. She was a very special Aunt to Bryan (Laurie) Schooley and the extended Pettit family. Pre-deceased by her parents Don and Aileen Schneider.
Maureen also enjoyed gardening, rock collecting, scrapbooking, and camping. Maureen touched the hearts of many within her cancer support groups, especially C.C.S&W. She was always there to help and inspire, even when she was dealing with health issues herself.
The family would like to send a special thank you to Maureen’s nurse Alex Korten, Dr. Scher, and the entire team at the Juravinski Cancer Centre for their wonderful care and support.
Williams Funeral Services, Ridgeway entrusted with arrangements. As requested, cremation will take place and a private family celebration of life will be at a later date. In memory of Maureen, those who wish may donate to the Juravinksi Cancer Centre.
