I am heartbroken to hear about Maureen’s passing and deeply grateful to have had the pleasure of knowing her. I cherish the times I spent with her and will never forget her amazing stories, her delightful sense of humour and her immense graciousness. One of her paintings graces my home and it serves to remind me of her colourful personality and her rebellious spirit. A spectacular woman in so many ways – she will be missed buf never forgotten. My condolences to her loving family who were kind enough to share her with me.
