September 18, 1940 – June 24, 2011
Mona, the beloved wife and life companion of Gordon Greffen, passed away on the morning of June 24, 2011 at the age of 70 years. She was the loving and supportive mother to daughter, Janice Robbins (Bruce Johnson) and son Steven Greffen (Jennifer) and one granddaughter Gabrielle. She is also survived by brothers: Fred Gould (Colleen), Bob Gould (Joyce) and Don Gould (Ann) and brother-in-law John Greffen (Doreen) and several nieces and nephews. She is lovingly remembered by her sister/cousin, Carol Nixon (Blaine). Mona was predeceased by her parents and sister/cousin Joan Rutherford (Gordon). Raised on a farm near the Cypress Hills in Saskatchewan, Mona always appreciated the outdoors and maintained beautiful flowers in her gardens. Through nurses training at the Calgary General, Mona developed her gift for caring and worked as an RN in Kelowna as Director of Care for an Alzheimer’s unit for several years. Mona’s caring ways continued into retirement as she volunteered at the Cancer Center in Kelowna. Mona’s strength of character and determination were admirable traits to all that cared for her this past year. We sincerely thank the staffs at the Cancer Center , KGH, Cottonwoods, and Hospice House and especially Dr. Michael Bobyn for his continuous support. A service will be held on Thursday, June 30, 2011 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.
