She is survived by her children Tina Smith, Debora (Shawn) Orchard, James (Ruth) Smith, and grandchildren Michelle Vendel and Megan Smith (Caleb).

Maureen lived a long happy life as a devoted wife, mother, aunt, sister, and grandmother. She loved her family fiercely and loved to cook and feed everyone. She enjoyed throwing family parties and any excuse for a get together. It was always ‘five o’clock somewhere’. Maureen had a green thumb and enjoyed flowers, vegetable gardening and canning. She was sassy, witty and if something was broken, she would find a way to fix it. Her C.B. handle in the 60’s and 70’s was ‘Miss Fix It’ and her motto was if you want something done you do it yourself!
A graveside service will be held on Friday, June 17, 2022, at 11AM at White Haven Memorial Park, 210 Marsh Road, Pittsford, NY 14534. Following the service there will be a celebration of life at Maureen’s house.
