Maureen loved her family immensely, she took advantage of any opportunity she had to spend time with them especially when she got to show off her cooking skills and her favorite & only son would Dj tunes for her to dance to. Maureen also found joy in occasional travel with her sister Roslyn Noel or just calling the family to send her love or words of encouragement.

There she worked in stock exchange, but her true passion didn’t come into fruition until she relocated to Maryland where she worked in apartment leasing helping and inspiring others throughout the different neighborhoods.
