O’BRIEN, Maureen Elizabeth

Maureen Elizabeth O’Brien

On Wednesday June 26th, Maureen Elizabeth O’Brien passed away at the age of 68 years old at Royal Jubilee Hospital, surrounded by her family’s love.

Born in Gander, Maureen finished her time on Salt Spring Island. She is survived by her husband Robert Lannan, and their 5 children: Martin, Clare, Patrick, Kathryn, and Jennifer, as well as her 4 siblings and several grandchildren.

Known for her quick wit, powerful intelligence, and open heart, Maureen will be remembered for her ability to welcome all into her home, and making sure no one left hungry. An unbelievably strong woman with a fondness for red lipstick and extra salt, she will be greatly missed by her family, friends, and all those who crossed her path.

A Celebration of Life will take place at Beaver Point Hall on Saturday July 20th at 2pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation via
