Maureen worked as a surgery coordinator at Harvard Vanguard in Cambridge before she retired. Prior to that Maureen worked at Charlie’s Kitchen for over twenty years.
Maureen was creative and crafty. She enjoyed traveling and visiting casinos with her husband, family and best friend Maria Labella. Her favorite was Atlantic City because Brenna and Ella loved it so much. Even bigger than her love for slot machines was her love for her granddaughters. She loved her family and friends with her whole heart. Celebrating Christmas at Lorene’s and St. Patrick’s Day at Danae and Matt’s were her favorites. She had an amazing strength, positive attitude and resilience that shined bright.
