Mau was raised in Red Deer and Calgary, Alberta. He married Jean Wensrich in Calgary on February 14, 1953. In 1966 Maurice graduated from the University of Calgary with a B.Ed. He moved his family to Kelowna in 1966 to teach at Dr. Knox High School and subsequently taught at Kelowna Secondary School, assuming duties as school librarian.

Mau and Jean were both active members of the Kelowna Springs Golf Club and founded the annual Super Seniors Tournament there.

The family would like to thank Dr. Canning for many years of care and the staff of Interior Health who were involved in Mau’s home care during the past 10 months. A family gathering will be held later this year. Memorial donations may be made to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation (www.kghfoundation.com).

  • Sad to hear that your father has passed away. It was good to read all the things he accomplished. I know you will support each other and tell each other of the great times and funny things you all did as a family. May your memories hold you tight and keep you safe.

  • I have many fond memories of Mau after having taught with him at both KSS and KLO. We both completed our masters at Gonzaga University. He got the better of me a couple of times in Spokane! Mau lived life to the fullest and often confessed that life was meant to be lived without restraint. Our condolences to Jean, the children, and grandchildren.

  • Mau was an inspirational leader for teacher librarians both locally and provincially. His dedication to his profession was only matched by his love of reading and research, his skills as a teacher, and his respect for the students that he served. His energy level was enviable and his passionate belief about the role of libraries in education was only surpassed by his willingness to assist his colleagues.

  • Mr Reveyrand was my English teacher at Dr Knox 1966-67 and made our classes more than interesting. I recall the day he made us all write sentences using new vocabulary words… and the word of that day was PARADOX. We all searched our dictionaries and went ahead and wrote our sentences. At the end Mr Reveyrand wrote his on the chalkboard… “At a recent medical convention held at the Capri Hotel, a PARADOX sat in one corner discussing…” I will always remember that day, that word and this special teacher. Fast forward 25 years and I meet him again… this time as a fellow Teacher-Librarian in this district… he was still a shining light in our educational system. Thank you for sharing him with us. Special thoughts for Jean and family.

    (And Louise, we want you to know that we are ever grateful to you for the extra care you took in organizing Mike’s plaque and signs. )

  • Dear Jean – we worked together such a short time and so long ago – but it is not forgotten. Very sorry to hear that Maurice had a long illness but I am sure your time with him was all the more precious. Affectionately, Jill
