The beautiful life of Mona McAuley came to a peaceful end on Wednesday, January 10th, 2024, at the Western Memorial Palliative Care Unit, Corner Brook, with her family by her side, at the age of 91 years. 

Mona married Basil McAuley on Oct. 30, 1952 and became the mother of five children, 3 girls and 2 boys.  Raising her family was her greatest joy and her most important work.  As her family grew, she cared for many children, and she was exceptional at this.  Mona took great joy in nurturing children.  She was an exceptional cook and baker and a talented knitter.  She was also a gleaming example of what it meant to be a kind-hearted, loving and generous person.  There was always room in her home and at her table, and she knew the value of a good laugh. 

Mona and Basil had many adventures together, and they instilled a love of laughter and fun in their family.  Mona kept her wit and sense of humour until the very end of her life.  Innumerable happy memories remain which will be cherished always.

Mona brought love and comfort to so many and touched the lives of all who knew her.  A beautiful woman inside and out.  She will be deeply missed, fondly remembered and celebrated always.

Leaving to mourn are her four children - Karen(Rendell); Janice(Brian); Albert(Kimmie); Hilda(Byron), and daughter-in-law, Sherry; seven grandchildren - Paula, Colin, Jennifer, Jeffery, Meghan, Wilfred and McAuley; eleven great-grandchildren - Kyla, Paige, Evan, Alex, Ava, Skylar, Payton, Khloe, Billie, Silas and Martha; Sister - Shirley Loder;  and a large circle of relatives, nephews, nieces and friends.

Mona was predeceased by her loving husband, Basil in 2000; Son, Paul; Parents, Albert and Martha Loder; Sisters, Marie Loder, Hilda Ruth and Doreen Whyte; Nephew, Richard Loder.

As expressions of sympathy, donations can be made to Western Memorial Regional Hospital Community Support Program (Western Memorial Regional Hospital Foundation).
