Maureen Annette Kornelson (nee Hoffman-nee Schollen) 1939 — 2017

Maureen Annette Kornelson (nee Hoffman-nee Schollen)

Maureen Kornelson of Kamloops, BC passed away on Saturday, August 12, 2017 at 78 years of age. She is survived by her loving husband Vic Kornelson, children, Dawn Moonie and Rhonda (Sam) Malesku, all of Kamloops; grandchildren, Mike Blair, Lonni Blair, Samantha Moonie, and Tyler and Travis Worthing; great grandchildren, Charlea and Robbie Blair, Bodie Gopher, and Chiara Greico; sister Yvonne (George) Heron; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her first husband Bob Hoffman, parents Lou and Kay Schollen, daughter Valerie Worthing, and her brothers, Bud and Don Schollen.

Maureen was born in Vancouver, BC. The family moved to Kamloops in the early 40’s. At age 16, Maureen started to work as an operator or BC Tel. The last position prior to her retirement from Telus in the late 90’s, was as “Service Representative.” Maureen loved fishing, camping, travelling, golfing, gardening, knitting, crocheting, always loved a good joke, and possessed a great sense of humour.  After a long, hard struggle with dementia, Maureen went to rest, while family members maintained a solemn and vigilant presence by her side.

A wonderful wife, mom, gramma, sister and aunt,

she will be forever remembered, loved and very sadly missed.


A special thank you to the Care Aides and RN’s at Overlander Extended Care (Willow), for taking care of Maureen.

Interment will take place at 11:00 am on Friday, August 18, 2017 at Hillside Cemetery.

    I’m so sorry to hear of Maureen’s passing, my sincere condolences to all of her family. I worked with her when Telus was still BC Tel many years ago but I always appreciated her sense of humour & so enjoyed meeting her again at a couple of reunions.

    So sorry to hear of Maureen’s passing. She was an incredible lady, compassionate, loving and her sense of humour was second to none. Loved the many wonderful moments we spent with her at Wells Grey Park. Condolences to all the family.
