Let the memory of Maureen be with us forever
  • 67 years old
  • Born on August 13, 1942 .
  • Passed away on May 8, 2010 .

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Maureen Mast who was born on August 13, 1942 and passed away on May 8, 2010. We will remember  and love her forever.   We hope that all friends and family will share their loving memories and photographs of Maureen.   While death may be the end of life it need not be the end of a relationship. 

Maureen was the daughter of James & Lucille Lambert, loving wife of Chet, devoted mother of Tisha and Meggie and the proud nana of Brannan, Colin, Holly Maureen and Liam.  Mo, as many of her friends called her loved life.  She had an over-sized personality, quick to temper and quick to forgive.  She loved to laugh, have fun and tell stories.  She was the friend you called on when in need.  She was the confidant, companion, sister, wife, mother who was always there for you. She was everything to so many.  She held your confidences, shared your grief, rejoiced in your triumphs and was a loyal friend.  She was a proud Leo, loved her Aruba & Guyana roots and near the end of her life, called herself a Texan!

A woman of great faith, God has called her home.  No doubt, she is wearing some kind of leopard print clothing, a big red hat, loving family and dancing to Spanish Eyes with Grandpa Jim.  We love you mommy, always.

Maureen, this entire weekend I had you in my thoughts and prayers -- one year -- it seems so surreal that you really are not physically here -- but within our hearts forever you will be always. Love, Helen

Holidays are tough...wish heaven had a phone...so I could hear your voice again. I thought of you today...but that's nothing new. I thought of you yesterday & days before that too. I think of you in silence & often speak your name. All I have are memories and pictures in a frame...

7 months momma. I miss you. Working every day to honor you, to be the woman you wanted me to be. Moving on shouldn't mean forgetting. A life lived in grace should mean a memory upheld in grace. I'll always try to do that for you. xoxoxo, Meggie
