Jon, I am sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She always had a smile on her face.

Having known Maureen all our lives, she will surely be missed. When ever we pass the church, the schools, the rectory, the games, the picnics.
Maureen was one of the greatest volunteer ever. She was always there to help anyone anytime. I just can't forget what a wonderful neighbor to my parents and me since she lived across the street from us. Maureen and her family are in our prayers and hearts.
