Maureen was such a creative and talented woman. An avid crafter and artisan, an incredible cook and baker. She played a massive role in the Northumberland Players and was always willing to try a new task. She and Garth played active roles in the Northumberland Gogo Getters helping raise over $40,000 for the Stephen Lewis Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign. She sang in the Shout Sister choir and hosted many fun gatherings at their beautiful home.

Her passing will be felt not only by her loving family and friends but by the community as a whole. Sending condolences to all her family.
