I'm saddened to hear of Maureen's passing. She left us way to soon. She was always larger than life, dancing in fun costumes and performing at senior centers and hospitals. We first met through Starliters Dance, when Brian and his performers did a show at Cokesbury Village. Maureen smiled and laughed with joy throughout the whole skit, as well as much of her life. She was, is and will always be our Glamour Girl! Sending warm thoughts and prayers of comfort to her family, her darling Joe and her Cupid. Dance with the angels, Maureen. Rest in Peace.

Maureen was my clinical instructor in my first year at DCCC. I am thankful for everything that she taught me, for sharing the passion she had for her career, her students, life and travel, and especially her family, Joe, and her dear puppy Cupid. She will be missed tremendously.
