The world lost a very special person on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 when Maureen left this world to join the other angels in heaven. Maureen was a devoted and loved employee of Lourdes Hospital for 45 years. Her dedication to the Lourdes’ Mission was recognized when she was presented with the 1998 Annual Mission Award-Frederic Ozanam. Maureen also received a plaque for her help with Hugs for Kids whose motto was “next to the verb “to love” comes the verb “to help.”” Maureen touched the lives of so many people and will truly be missed.
She loved her community and applied her nursing skills when she joined the Great Bend/Hallstead Volunteer Ambulance Service. She was also a member of the Hallstead American Legion Auxiliary Post #357 and the Great Bend V.F.W. Auxiliary Post 6223.
Her family would like to thank all of her friends for their love and support the last few days. A special thank you to Robert Ragard for all his help. We would also like to give special thanks to the wonderful staff at Wilson Memorial Hospital I.C.U. and North Wing 4 for their care and compassion.
Maureen was predeceased by her parents, Harold Joseph and Bessie Crook. She is survived by her sister, Nancy and Gary Sienko; her brother, Michael and Dawn Crook; her nieces, Julie and Mark Gallagher, Jamie Sienko; her nephews, Gary and Kylie Sienko, Joseph Crook, Jordan Crook, and Adam Crook; great nieces, Hannah and Harper Gallagher and Tatum Sienko; great nephew, Carson Gallagher; and her life-long partner and very best friend, Alice Heier.
A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at St. Lawrence Catholic Church.
In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation to True Friends Animal Shelter, 16332 SR 706, Montrose, PA 18801 or a charity of your choice.
