It was with great sadness that we learned of Mona Piper’s passing on January 31st, 2018. Mona has been an icon of our community for decades. She was Toronto’s longest-serving crossing guard, keeping our children safe for 43 years in the Mt. Pleasant-Davisville neighbourhood.
Last year, when I asked constituents to submit their nominees for our Outstanding Neighbour Award, Mona was the first person nominated. In fact, we ended up receiving another four separate nominations for Mona! Her friendly face will be sorely missed; her caring nature and service to our neighbourhood will always be remembered and appreciated.
