Dear Pat and family,
We are so very sorry to read of Maureen' death. She was beautiful and absolutely charming but more important a kind, warm-hearted lady. Meeting Maureen in the pharmacy, or in the supermarket lifted up the day and made it brighter and happier, a smile for everyone and usually a merry laugh. I remember seeing her at a New Year's Eve party a number of years ago and she was dressed in green velvet with sparkling jewelry and she looked just like a queen. We are truly saddened and send our sympathy to you all.

Maureen has been a part of Deep River's fabric for decades. Whether it was her smiling face when she worked with my Mom and Dad or on stage in one of the many Deep River Player's shows she starred in.

I was privileged to have spent a lot of time with Maureen...and I am a better person for it.

My condolences to Pat and her loving daughters.

Dear Pat, Kim, Andrea and Holly,
Our most sincere sympathy is with all of you and your family. What can we say about Maureen except that she was ALWAYS a pleasure to be with.
I played golf with her regularly for the last few years and she was always upbeat and positive. When we finished golfing, if Maureen didn’t have a good score, she would inevitably say, “ I knew I should have taken up ballet.”
She is at peace now and we all have joyful memories of her. Love and hugs, 💕Mary and Paul Fehrenbach

We know it has been, and will continue to be, a difficult time for you all, but many people are thinking of you. I’m pretty sure she’s having a drink with Scott right now.
Much love, Donna & Mike

Pat, Andrea, Kim and Holly,
In many different ways, Maureen was the perfect doll for the Deep River Players' production of The Doll's House back in the early 80's when we were still trying to figure out where Deep River was. Her characteristic smile was associated with a deep sense of humor, a profound understanding of the human condition, an infectious laugh and an inner joy that could not be held back or disguised. May those kinds of warm memories help sustain you (and the rest of us) as we deal with this sad loss.

Pat and Family: By reading all the numerous condolences above Maureen she was truly loved by everyone. I was very thankful I went and had a nice visit with her. She had such a positive attitude and I can’t imagine how very hard it must have been for you Pat and your beautiful girls to say goodbye to her. At least now she is at peace and no doubt will be looking down on all of you. One thing no one can ever take away from us is all our great memories. Pat I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Maureen died on my birthday which I will never forget. She was so beautiful and was always upbeat and had such a positive attitude. I can’t imagine Pat how hard it was on you to lose “The Love of Your Life”. God Bless you and your family at such a difficult in your life, our prayers and thoughts are with you. Colleen and Martin
