So sorry to read this today. I worked with Maureen for perhaps 8 years at Worker’s Compensation (as it was known then). We had many great chats and she was a very pleasant person who liked to help others. She enjoyed a good party and I spend some time at her place on Diamond place in Mount Pearl.
My deepest condolences to all of Maureen’s friends and family.
