“O Flower of Scotland
When will we see your like again” ?
Maureen left us on May 15th, 2023. She was born June 23, 1949.
She is survived by her husband Giuseppe Mattioli (Joe); Her Sister Winnie (Robert) Watson of the UK and her brother Bob Geoghan also of the UK; Sister in laws Romana Mattioli of the USA and Patricia Montanari of Italy, and a special friend Charlotte Farnam.
Maureen was a nurse for 35 yrs in the NHS in Scotland before she met her husband and came to the United States. She loved and traveled all over America, She was amazed by the beauty and immense size of the USA. Her favorite city in America was San Francisco. She loved to play Trivia and had friends from all over the globe. She also never had a bad word to say about anyone and always looked and found good in everyone she met. Anyone that met her understood the gift she was to us all.
She will always be our “Wee Scot” and remembered with a smile.
A dinner to celebrate her life will be held at Joeys, 1789 Penfield Rd, Penfield, NY 14526 on Saturday May 27th at 4:30pm.
