Maureen Pepin, 1934-2022

We are sad to report the death of Langley Heritage Society member Maureen Pepin who passed away on December 24, 2022.

Maureen had a strong dedication to volunteerism and community service, serving as a docent at the Langley Centennial Museum for 24 years and contributing to many local histories.

Read Maureen’s obituary in the Vancouver Sun.

“Maureen was an active member of the Fraser Valley Hunt Club for thirteen years and volunteered at the Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association. She was Chairperson of the Langley Scholarship Committee for over thirty-three years, looking after all of the scholarships for the secondary schools in Langley School District. She was also on the Board of the Langley Foundation for nine years, before turning over all of the scholarship work to the Foundation. Since retiring from teaching she has been an active member of the Langley Retired Teachers’ Association, volunteered as a docent at the Langley Centennial Museum for twenty-four years, edited “The Place Between”, a history of the Aldergrove area, and compiled the “Roads and Other Place Names in Langley”, and the “History of Langley Schools”. She has also been a member of the Langley Heritage Society, along with her husband Fred. The Pepin picnic was her favourite event every August for many years.”
