    I worked with Maureen at ARAMARK until she retired to North Carolina. She was a wonderful co-worker but more than that she was my friend. She always sent me a Christmas card & called on occassion but i had been caring for my sick husband this past year & didn't realize that i had not heard from her & i am so sorry for that. I am so sorry i will not be able to attend her service but i will forever be grateful to have had her as my friend. I offer my condolences to your entire family.
