Aunt Maureen was a loving aunt to me. My memories go back to dinners at their house in Peoria across the road from Newman golf course. I remember their dog Candy. She was a great friend to my mother, Eva, as well. She worked hard, loved my uncle Frank and cousin LaDonna, and, of course, her grand children. I am glad I knew her and that she was my aunt. May she rest in heavenly peace.
