To my dearest sister in law, Maureen, we only met about 3 times through the years while the children were small. we kept in touch the old fashioned way by letters. Recently we had the joy of meeting up during visits to Stafford and of course Mary and Craig,s wedding.It was joy and privilege to have known such a beautiful, kind, thoughtful, amusing lady, and a shock to lose her.
Eternal rest grant unto her Oh Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. All our love and sympathy to Chris, Ian,Dave, Cathy, Patti,Sheila and families. from Eileen John James Anne and Johnny.
maureen’s gentle loving smile, kind disposition, and willingness to help and get the job done will be remembered. my sincere sympathy and prayers.
