May 23, 1938 – March 20, 2011
It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our wife and Mum at VGH. Moira is survived by Bill, her loving husband of over 50 years; daughters Barbara-Ann O’Brien and Alison Walker; and sons-in-law Roger O’Brien and Scott Bourgeois. She will also be missed by her brother Malcolm Bond (Stephanie), sister Shirley McDowell, sister-in-law Moira McQuarrie, and family, friends, and colleagues all over the world. Born and raised on Salt Spring Island, Moira graduated from VGH School of Nursing in 1959. While raising two daughters with Bill she continued with her Nursing career, most notably as Senior Infection Control Nurse at VGH. She was an active member of both CHICA and IFIC, including a term of President of CHICA. Moira loved her cats, music, cooking, gardening, traveling, entertaining, and attending church. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her. Memorial Service to be held Thursday, March 31, 2011, 2pm at Christ Church Cathedral, 690 Burrard Street, Vancouver, reception to follow in the church hall.
