Maureen enjoyed playing cards, going to the casino, and dancing. Maureen also loved spending time in the kitchen. She spent over 30 years working as a cook at Winfields, Country Kitchen, and the Hilton. She loved to cook for her family, as well. Nothing brought more joy to her heart than seeing her family sitting at the table together and enjoying a nice meal. She would always say after a long day of food and laughter, "Kitchen's closed"... 20 minutes later, she would be asking if we were hungry. That is how big her heart was. She always made sure that everyone in her family was taken care of at all times.
Maureen was a remarkable woman and when she would laugh, she would light up the room. She was known as Grandma Duck by not only her grandkids, but by just about everyone who knew her. And everyone she knew was called "Whatchamacallit!"
As Grandma Duck would say, "Nite All! Love Ya Lots!"
A Memorial Service and Memorial Dinner will be held at a later date.
