Amelia A. Maurinac

Mary Beyerbach

Amelia Maurinac, was my first cousin, known to me as "Millie"., When I left home at 19 to attend school in NYC, from another state, my weekend subway trips to spend time with her ,her family and her parents who were my aunt and uncle are such a warm memory of my youth as we sat around the kitchen table talking and laughing.

As the years passed, Millie and I shared many conversations and comforts with one another , .. loss of our parents, widowhood for both of us, happy moments of stories of our children, world events, her memories of our grandparents on my mother's side, whom I never met.

In her later years she told me of the fun and companionship she found with such a peasant man in her town named Joe.
Her warm friendly personality matched her outward beauty, and her generosity with her charity time was another example of her genuine kindness. She was beloved by so many . I shared a birthday with her one year in her home. ...So many cards! We went to Mass and so many people greeted her as she returned their warmth.

She lived a long and wonderful life, and leaves behind her daughters Alice and Michelle, grandchildren, great grandchildren , extended family and so many friends. She spread her love to all including the many pets she had over the years,

She will always be in my heart.
"Goodbye lovely lady".
Cousin Mary
