Maureen was so special. I knew her as a wonderful online Maltipoo Club sister. Her and Cupid sent my puppy Lexi special gifts because that’s what a sweet lady she was. She loved everyone especially little Cupid, her rescue pup. May God bless her family, Joe and Cupid. I’ll be hugging the blanket she sent my puppy tonight and remembering what a good friend she was even though we never met in person. I know the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing they have another Angel that has joined them. I’ll miss you Maureen

Every patient she cared for benefited from her knowledge, caring and compassion. I admired her and appreciated her suggestions to improve the quality of care. My condolences to her family and close friends. Joe Saunders
