We are deeply saddened by the recent death in June of Maureen Eckstein, a friend and founding member of the Council of Union Retirees Regina. Many labour, community and retiree associations have lost a staunch, dedicated and committed ally. Maureen had remarkable energy and stamina. She was involved in various causes and organizations including the peace movement, library, public school board, preserving green space in our parks, support group for ovarian cancer, public housing, public transportation, poverty reduction, and the list goes on. Maureen was a tireless membership recruiter for CURR and used her extensive network of activities to enhance the work of the Council. She will be missed tremendously. Rest in peace, Sister Maureen.
