Maureen was a graduate of Brigham Young University with a degree in Early Childhood Development. She spent her life caring for children as a professional nanny and friend. She was employed at Duke University Medical Center on the Covid and Urgent Care call lines.
Maureen was a faithful and beloved member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She served (the church) in many different ways, but was currently serving as the Primary President (Children’s ministry) for the Hillsborough Ward. Those who served with Maureen witnessed her willingness to put others’ needs before her own. She served fiercely and sincerely, while maintains great humility. It was her love for the Savior that motivated all that she did, and our lives are better for knowing her. There were many who were touched by her quiet and kind service, and she will be dearly missed.
Her memorial service will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 150 Ashbury Blvd. in Mebane, North Carolina on Saturday, March 18, 2023 at 11:30 AM. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her memory to the animal shelter of your choice.
