She also worked at other jobs including Extra Foods and most recently at Schwartz Home Building Center where she met so many new people and made many friends and also learned that she really liked bowling! Maureen loved to go fishing and camping and more recently she enjoyed big game hunting with Pat. She was a whiz with anything electronic and had dominated many a computer not working to its capacity. Maureen was a mom through and through, attending numerous hockey games and practices, soccer games and running the kids anywhere they needed to be. She was a special part of a close knit family who loved her very much and will truly miss her smile and the warm touch of her hand.
