Maureen was born in NYC on September 8, 1932, grew up in Nyack, NY and moved to Monticello, NY in 1957. She graduated from Green Mountain College, VT and later received her BA and MA in Education from SUNY New Paltz, NY. Maureen was an elementary school teacher
for 26 years at the Monticello NY Central School district. She moved to Rochester, MI in 2005 where she made many new friends and started the "PMS Lunch Bunch". Maureen loved her family, travelling, reading, cooking, her pets and acting - Sullivan County Repertory Theater and at the OPC in Rochester, MI. Mom was a very smart, articulate woman, with an irreverent sense of humor and our best friend. She will be sorely missed and is loved by all. Following cremation, Maureen will be interred next to her son Craig in Eastlawn Cemetery in Lake Orion, MI.
