I remember the day I met Mrs. Anderson in 1961 at 4 years old! My parents were painting the bowling alley in OB which they just bought when we moved to the Island. She and Kris asked if I wanted to go to the park - and of course I was thrilled and gained a life-long friend. Such kindness!

To all of Maureen's wonderful family my condolences to you all. Maureen was one of a kind and I am so grateful to have been her friend. I will never forget all the fun times we spent together. Our foursome will not and has not been the same. Her spirit will always be with you as it will be with us, Sandra, Megan and myself. May the Grace of the Holy Spirit comfort you. Love Wendy

i came to MV the Summer of 1979, and knocked on many doors in OB looking for work. Most store owners were rude and dismissive. Then i knocked on Maureen's door. Such a beautiful, kind and lovely lady. Although she didn't have work for me, i always remembered her generous spirit, that distinguished her from all others i met that summer. How lucky for me that i eventually married into her wonderful family. I will miss seeing Maureen walking around town, her smile that lit up every room she walked into, and the proud and gentle, loving way she talked about her family. She was truly one of the nicest, kindest people i have ever had the pleasure to know. My heart is with her family, with the hope that you will find consolation in knowing that you put the joy in Maureen's heart and soul. with much love, Susie

To the Anderson families, my deep condolences to you all. I did not know Maureen but, I knew she was a good friend with Wendy Rose who always spoke so highly of her. Kathy, I am so sorry I did not make the connection when we spoke at the SSA recently. I am so very sorry. My prayers are with the entire family at this time of your loss. May she be at peace and you all as well. Sincerely, Jill Manning

I know I had to have run into Maureen more than a few times around the island and at the bike shop. I did not know her well, if much at all. What I do know of her gentle, exceptionally kind husband Bill, her lovely and talented daughter Gretchen, and soft spoken musical grandson Matt.... all I can say is that she had to be, and was a magnificent soul, surely . A devoted wife and doting mother and grannie. One doesn’t have a daughter and a husband so magnificent without deserving their love. May her soul rest in peace in the loving arms of the eternal God. Amen.
