In Loving Memory of
My Darling Maureen

My Darling Maureen

May 24th 1941 - March 27th 2007

She was the love of my life
and had a gift from God...
She could listen!

Maureen took the pain and suffering from children, their parents,
fellow teachers, family, friends, fans and even strangers. She
listened, counselled, gave hope, love and understanding until
she could take no more and God has now taken her to rest, but
knowing my darling Maureen she is already counselling Elvis in
her wonderful, new, Blue Suede Heaven. RIP my love!

Maureen worked at Harlesden Primary School for 26 years and counselled thousands of children, their parents and teachers. Amazingly the current head of the school was a new teacher at Harlesden in the late 1980s and said when she first started teaching she had a difficult time with the children but Maureen was so kind, helping her through her bad days, giving counsel, support and advice.

Instead of flowers we are asking each person who attends the funeral to bring just one rose to place on the casket as they pay their last respects to Maureen at the end of the non religious service. Instead of a wreath or bouquet of flowers people can make a donation to the "Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre" for Cancer Support. This is the "Elvisly Yours" designated charity since Maureen developed breast cancer in March 2000 and they have been very kind counselling Maureen ever since.

People who cannot attend the funeral can still send one rose and make a donation to the
"Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre":

Maureen’s Funeral and Memorial Service will be a celebration of her life and reflect how she touched so, so many people all her life with personal tributes from family, friends, teachers she worked with and children she taught and helped in so many ways, all mixed with lots of music of the “King” and a little bit of “Queen”…She was loved by everyone and just like Elvis she was a gift from God.
