Maureen worked for the DeVoe Realty company for over 20 years and her greatest thrill was to match customers with their dream home. She especially took pride helping young people buy their first home. She had many wonderful stories including being part of selling Dustin Hoffman his home in Roxbury, or the day she spent with Raquel Welsh looking at homes or the great relationship she had with Stephen Sondheim. She told a great story about selling the Castle, near Kent, CT. She loved to dance and had the beat to the end. She will be missed by us all.
