Maureen enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She played an active part in all their lives readily acting as chauffeur, advisor, cook, nurse, referee, seamstress, camper, exerciser, cheerleader, babysitter, dress-up fashion show judge, and potty trainer.
Maureen loved family vacations and get-togethers. She spent many happy years in various bridge clubs. Maureen had great affection for the game and the many friends she made. She was a devout Catholic and in the last few years of her life, a member of
St. Ann's Catholic Church.
