Maureen attended Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart church in Ankeny; where she had also taught CCD classes. She enjoyed sewing, crocheting and needlepoint, collecting hallmark Christmas ornaments, and tending her garden. Most of all, Maureen loved spending time with her family, especially her three grandchildren, Donovan, Autumnlee and baby Eddie.

Dear Jason and family-
I am sincerely sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom and Grandma. It's a very tough time. I lost my mom in the fall, so I can empathize. Please know that we're praying for you and for His grace to find you and yours.

Dear Mike and Family,

I just heard about Maureen’s passing. You have my heart felt sympathy. I will always remember Maureen and our good times together. I loved our chats later on as we both got older (and I hope wiser.) Maureen will always be in my heart and remain a part of my life. I will miss her dearly as you all will.

Take Care-Diane

Dear Nancy, Laurie, Susie and the sweet loving family of Maureen., the Pringle family. My heart is so sad to hear about the loss of Maureen in this world. I personally will miss my face book connection with her almost daily and her sweet comments of encouragement and joy of life she always had. We reconnected months back as she discovered the journey of cancer I was walking and I have to say that she became of of my biggest, quiet, cheerleaders and I will never forget that. Maureen may you feel the loving arms of God around you and be at peace. Please keep looking in on all of us down here that still have work to do. May God Grant You Eternal Rest Dear Friend, and reward you on a job well done.❤️🙏
