To my wonderful Aunt Maurine, I will miss you so much. You are one of my heros. No matter what, you always had a smile on your face and you were so good to all of us. Having all of you special people in heaven looking down on us and protecting us makes me have no fear of death because I know you will all be there with open arms waiting for me. I love and miss you. Give hugs and kisses to all of our loved ones. God blessed me by giving me an aunt like you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Maurine was a very special lady. I cherish the time I was able to go and visit her on a daily basis as "that girl". We all have another angel looking over us. Maurine -- give Grandma Jane and Grandpa Arnie hugs from us! Love you all!

Maurine was my sister Inez' mother-in-law, I met her many times and was always welcomed at her home. She was a warm and kind person and my sympathy goes out to Beau and Ross, who have lost their grandmother, as well as to all of her family.
