Condolence & Memory Journal


l will always have such fond memories of our sweet and loving Reentas. She was a truly kind and graceful lady all the time and had a golden heart to share. She was beautiful inside and out and never seemed to age. She came to our house often dressed as Mother Goose and my kids just loved it and thought she was real. They never connected the dots that 10 minutes later my friend from Marymount showed up for the weekend. They loved telling her that if she got there sooner she would have met Mother Goose! Rest in Peace, my loving friend!

I met Maureen at the Wayne center. I had the pleasure of being her hairdresser there. I only knew Maureen for a short time but just grew to love her so quickly! She was the sweetest and I was lucky enough to have been able to get to spend time with her. I will truly miss you Maureen! Just hope you know how much you meant to me ❤

Mo was such a beautiful Lady from the inside and out. Not only that she was a very dear friend and we really enjoyed doing the Surrey Gala each year. I remember Mo saying that we were' Partners In Crime). We laughed often. Mo was a very generous person with time, advice, she had a humongous heart and helped everyone out even people she didn't even know. She had such a contagious laugh, full of kindness, a great sense of humor and on occasions an' overnight Buddy. She was always a delight to be with and Mo was a very, very Dear Friend. Sending heartfelt condolences to all her Family and Friends.

Mo was such a special lady. I enjoyed every minute I worked with her on the Surrey Gala and Ladies Fashion Show. Mo was a tireless volunteer during my tenure at Surrey. She had so many dear friends and was such a GOOD friend to so many. Her smile always lit up a room. We all have a beautiful angel watching over us now. Thank you Mo, for all you did, for who you were, a graceful classy lady.
