She loved living in Boston and shared all the beautiful things she encountered during her adventures.

Sorry it took me so long to write this tribute to my sister Maureen. I guess I am still.in shock with her passing. I will miss her so much , especially how she always corrected me and made sure I was always presentable. She was always there for me and my girls, Sandra, Gabby and Marissa in the good times and bad. Maureen I love you and will miss you until we meet again.

Maureen was sweet, kind, gentle, beautiful and smart. Even when she was struggling, she was constantly thinking of others and looking for a way to be of service . She was quick to offer time and expertise to help make an event or group effort better-- always finding ways to contribute and leave the world a better place. I never met any of her family but I feel like I know her sisters and brother well, as she always spoke so fondly of you and of her nieces and nephews. There was a place in heart for everyone she knew and every place (Boston, NJ, Texas, NY, Spain etc) she or members of her family had been.  I will miss her. May her memory be a blessing.

With deepest sympathy on the loss of my dear friend -

Please note how deeply saddened I am to hear of Maureen’s passing. She was a great person and we had become very close friends.

I believe that she was a gift from God and she made a difference in so many lives. I hope we can celebrate the life Maureen lived, remembering the good times we’ve shared -

The Bible says that "Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted."
I pray God will bless all of us and give us the strength to carry on without her.
I am blessed having had the opportunity to know her and count her among my closest friends. I will pray for Maureen’s family that they have strength during this difficult and challenging time -

God Bless I feel truly blessed.
In Faith & Sympathy,

Thank you for visiting Maureen's memorial site. We all loved Maureen and will miss her dearly. Whether it was her bright smile, quick wit or her own little way she had an impact on all of us. We were very proud of her accomplishments and amazed by the number of dear, caring friends she had. Keep hold of the memories and she will be in our hearts forever.
