Maureen was one of God’s angel on earth. She radiated positive energy to everyone around her. Even the folks who knew her ones will know the love and affection she had for others. She was generous and always remembered others’ important occasions. She had a sense of humor and was able to connect with folks without age barrier. Her smile always gave everyone a sense of feeling to let go off the burdens and trust in the light of God. She was a devoted servant to God and His loving people. She was a role model for many. My family knew Marueen through our late uncle Fr. D’Silva. Even when her health was failing she took a long trip to attend his funeral on July 14 in NC. We enjoyed the time spent with her when she visited India to attend my brother’s wedding. We also took a trip to visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Health in Velankanni in India. May Maureen’s soul rest in peace in the hands of the Lord. May God bless and give strength to Maureen’s family and loved ones in this difficult time.

Maureen was such a dear person…a true friend for many years. Her Irish wit and her strong love of service to so many people was her gift to each of us. I will miss her dearly, but I know that her spirit will be with us each time a patient receives communion at Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital. Her desire to lovingly prepare the altar for Mass was so evident. “Maureen, may Jesus hold you in the Palm of His hand and love you for all eternity.” We will always love you…
