I am so sorry for your loss! My son Grant went to elementary school with Jackson and Maura was so kind to Grant and our family. I didn’t realize until now we both went to Buchholz High in Gainesville. Many prayers and love sent to Jackson and the rest of Maura’s family. May she rest in peace. Pam and Grant Jones, Cumming, GA
I am so sorry and broken hearted about your loss Nicole, Elaine and everybody. Maura was so amazing, strong, kind, dependable and much more. I will always remember her. God Bless Maura and family.
Nicole and Jackson our condolences to you and your family. I met your mom when you were in preschool with Emily and always enjoyed our dinners together when you girls were in Brownies. She loved you both so much and know she will always be with you. ????????❤️
My condolences to her family for there loss. Maura and I went to school together and lived close to each other in Gainesville. She was always fun to be around.
Dear Elaine, John, Nicole and Jackson
I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Maura (Lee) and Anne. What a devastating time. I so loved Maura–as I teenager I absolutely worshipped her (and thought Anne was the coolest). I still remember both her Gainesville phone number and her birthday. When I went to New York to school and to work on Wall St. Maura came to visit me. We had a wonderful time as always, and I believe that was about the time Maura decided to go into finance herself. We lost touch for awhile–mostly on my side as I moved overseas–and then got in touch again. I was so happy to see her in Gainesville a few years ago. I find it hard to believe she and her beautiful light are gone. I do so hope you find solace in each other and knowing how much Maura brought to those of us who loved her. Wishing you peace and courage and faith. Love, Mary Jeanne
