Maureen Nystrom

Maureen Nystrom

Maureen Geneva Nystrom came to this world to love. Raised with seven siblings in the Slocan Valley, she married Doug Nystrom at age 16 and had 4 mischievous rascals, Mitch, Tom, Randy, and Wendy. Her gypsy soul journeyed the province in a camperized bus in true hippie fashion, spreading love like wildflowers wherever she went. After Doug passed from this world, Maureen found the heart of Edward Boisclair and made a beautiful life in Nakusp, BC with 7 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. She taught us that all you need is love, and to celebrate life at every possible moment. We are blessed to have known her and will miss her dearly, but know that she lives in each belly laugh, each bear hug, each cozy quilt. Every time we share life, her love will shine bright eternal in all of us. Thanks for the love Gramma, Mom, sister, and friend. Come to the Schubert center, Saturday December 10 at 1:00pm to celebrate the life of a magical woman. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Hospice Society in Vernon would be a beautiful honor to Maureen’s legacy of love.
