We have just received the news that Maureen Morris died in hospital on Monday night, June 2, 2014. In the last few years Maureen had been afflicted by declining health, which severely curtailed her social activities.
A memorial service is being contemplated at a later date, possibly this autumn.
Maureen was a very active union member over her teaching career. She served as a union delegate and as President of her local union, the Lakeshore Teachers’ Association (today subsumed into the Pearson Teachers Union). She was after that President of the Canadian Teachers Federation (1995-1997) and also President of the Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers.
Maureen is the recipient of the CTF 2014 Special Recognition Award.
