The CAHS extends our condolences to long-time CAHS member Hugh Halliday in the passing of his wife, Monique Halliday.

(nee Ahern)
Wife, educator, family historian, aunt par excellence and friend. At home, July 28, 2015. Born February 24, 1939 in Quebec City, she was raised in Parent, Quebec where she began her career in teaching which led her through schools in Hull (Quebec), Niagara Falls, Kanata and Orleans. For four summers (1970 to 1973) she lived in a tent trailer while pursuing studies at University of Ottawa. Monique was a superb, imaginative teacher who brought all her life experiences to the classroom, and her last job was as a vice- principal mentoring a new principal. After retirement, she was often recognized by parents and former students. Her interests included gourmet cooking, fine wines, literature, theatre, curling, travel and owls. She was fiercely proud of her French and Irish roots and overcame seasickness to visit Rainsford Island (Boston) where her father was born. Survived by husband Hugh, sister Pierrette (Lambert) and numerous nieces and nephews. Condolences may be offered online. Click here to view.
