While I did not know her well, I was fortunate to have met her because of Linda & a dear friend of Maureen’s , Myra Rosser. We had some very memorable conversations. She was a wonderful loving person, always with a smile on her face & was a great Cajun cook. You all have my sincere & heartfelt sympathy & codolences which I hope comforts you in your time of sorrow! May time & reflection of loving memories be a source of healing for all of you relatives & her dear friends. Ron Grabau
