Rev. Ronald (Ron) I. Maund
Rev. Ronald (Ron) I. Maund passed away at The Moncton Hospital on Tuesday, January 30, 2018. Born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island in 1942, he was the oldest son of the late Ivan and Violet (Smith) Maund.
Ron was a graduate of Mount Allison University and Pine Hill Divinity Hall and was ordained by the United Church of Canada in 1968. He served in the North Highlands Pastoral Charge, Cape North, NS, Central and Mountain View United Churches in Moncton, and was instrumental in the development of the Pastoral Care Department of The Moncton Hospital where he served for many years. Most recently he was the United Church Chaplain for the Greater Moncton Hospitals Chaplaincy. Always available in an emergency, Ron was well known in various other congregations either as a supply minister or offering pastoral care services. He was active in both Maritime Conference and Chignecto Presbytery, and in many community organizations in the Greater Moncton area and beyond.
Ron is survived by his wife of 51 years, Ilene (Norrie), daughters Deborah Maund and Jennifer Vandenberg (Mike), grandsons Elias, Seth, and Jakob. He is also survived by his brothers Donald, Winston (Kathy), Gary (Marjorie), sister-in-law Valerie, eight dear nieces and nephews and eight great nieces and nephews.
Ron was a devoted husband, dad, grampy, brother, uncle, pastor, and friend who touched many lives during his fifty years of ministry.
The family would like to extend sincere thanks to Dr. Pat Phelan and the staff of the Palliative Care Unit of The Moncton Hospital for their exceptional care and support.
