After a long and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer, Maxine Povering passed away peacefully on the afternoon of March 22nd at Hill House Hospice. Beloved mother of Cassandra and Erica, sister of Elaine, girlfriend of Larry Cooper, and best friend to Joni Dulberg and Terri Dunnigan. This vibrant, passionate, vivacious woman led her life with conviction and integrity. She was taken away from us far too soon. We would like to thank the great staff at Hill House Hospice who made Maxine comfortable and well cared for during her time there. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hill House Hospice at 36 Wright St, Richmond Hill, L4C 4A1 or online at
