Rest in peace Maureen!

RIP Maureen! I will miss visiting with you after all the years of being your Avon lady. You became a friend a long time ago, not just my customer. We had a nice phone visit a couple weeks ago. I can not make the funeral but hopefully 🙏 l can watch livestream. Good by my friend.

I had the pleasure of living next door to Maureen for 2 years! We had a great bond! I recently learned of her illness this past Christmas when we exchange Holiday cards! We shared frequent favors for each other and she always tried to pay me. I wouldn’t accept her payment, but then she gave me a jar of Salsa one day as payment! The next time she tried to pay me, i said “No, i just need that Salsa Recipe” She did gave us her Salsa Recipe (perfectly written :)). 13 year later we continue to make her salsa and always talk of her. She will be deeply missed.

I am so glad that God answered Maureen’s prayer…”When my time comes, I hope He takes me quietly and quickly”. I will miss her texts as we both went through our cancer journeys together. May she be at peace now.

Rest In peace dear cousin, Maureen. Hugs & prayers to Lonae, Duane & family. Love, Micki & Ralph JImison.
