Maureen “Mo” Curtin, 61, of Waynesville, Ohio passed away on Saturday, February 13, 2021 after a 10-year battle with metastatic lobular cancer. Maureen was born in Cleveland, OH to Owen and Patricia “Patsy” Lowry. She was compassionate and loved caring for others. She studied dietetics at the University of Dayton (UD), which led to a career in health care where she focused on the needs of Alzheimer’s patients. At UD she met Paul Curtin, where the two became best friends and married in October 1988. Maureen’s huge heart showed in the constant love she provided to her children Daniel and Alyssa. She was preceded in death by her father. She is survived by her immediate family, her mother Patsy, her sister Margaret “Peggy” Kelly and many other relatives. Maureen’s strength and courage will continue to be an inspiration to all that knew her. In lieu of flowers, friends may honor her memory with contributions toward research that pushes the boundaries of cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Although I only had the pleasure of meeting Maureen once, in that one meeting Mo’s kind, caring, friendly, and FUN personality left a lasting impression. In that one meeting I was able to see Alyssa was raised by a wonderful mother and I was able see where Alyssa got her shining personality.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I first met Mo when we moved to McCray Farms in '97 and we quickly became great friends. Mo loved her family and was so proud of Paul, Dan and Alyssa. She had big heart, quick wit, a great sense of humor, infectious laugh, and a sense of adventure. Over the years we have shared so many wonderful memories that it's too hard to name a favorite. We loved going to the Brown's games together over the years and texting during the games when we weren't together but watching them on TV. The joy that Mo has brought to my life will never be forgotten. Thanks for the memories Mo.

More than 50 yrs ago, when Owen, Patsy, Peggy and Maureen were home in Ireland on holiday, they came to visit their great friends, John and Kitty Luskin in Cong.
Us kids were all told to go outside and play. We were desperate to impress these cool american kids, with the great clothes and endless supply of gum. So we headed over to Clarkes field to show them our ponies. These were unbroken , breeding mares. Before we knew what was happening, Maureen was up on Star, a mad mare at the best of times! She took off across the field, full gallop, no bridle or saddle. It was a moment and a vision I will never forget... Maureen was like some fearless warrior queen as we all held our breath and time stood still.
The mare stopped suddenly and Maureen came off... she was laughing and covered in muck . We were united in making up some story to explain the torn clothes to our parents.
Rest in peace brave and beautiful Maureen x

When we first moved to Springboro in 2000, we were immediately greeted by Maureen and her friendly, outgoing, and welcoming personality. We spent a lot of years watching our daughters build a beautiful and lasting friendship! I always admired Maureen's intelligence and "take" on things. I have so many memories of the great times we had watching the neighborhood kids play in the cul de sac. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Paul, Daniel, Alyssa, and all of Maureen's family.

With love, Jen, Steve, Katie and Greg Fischer.

Mo was one of a kind. I will never forget her warmth whenever I visited her at home. Whenever we got together, she would always sit me down and ask all about my life, my job, and my family. She had the gift of really caring about others, and I will miss our get-togethers and talks. I'm especially grateful for our amazing trip to Hawaii and our incredible helicopter tour. You couldn't ask for a better travelling companion. I will miss her greatly. ❤️
