Age 61, passed away on July 4, 2016 with her loving family by her side.
Maureen will forever be remembered as a loving and caring wife, mother, and grandmother. Her love of family was limitless and she was selfless in every situation. She was an example to us all. Her talents as a homemaker were incredible and her skills in the kitchen will be missed by all who tasted her recipes. Maureen knew which of her “specialties” each of her family members liked best and would always prepare enough for them to go home with leftovers to enjoy. Almost every meal was concluded with a delicious dessert. On the rare occasion she did not have a dessert prepared she’d roam through the pantry and whip up something sweet. She lovingly received the nickname “Martha Stewart” from her family. Aside from cooking, baking, and other tasks around her home, Maureen enjoyed several things outdoors.
Reading, gardening, fishing, and hot yoga were some of the things she was passionate about. Cam recalls, she would “spend hours on the beach reading and solving all of the world’s problems.” Maureen enjoyed tending to the flowers in her garden; it was a place where she could recollect. As for fishing, she had a gift and “could out catch us all, but when it came to cleaning them she was nowhere to be found!” She also enjoyed listening to music, and especially that of Barry Manilow, Michael Bolton, and David Cook. These were just a few of Maureen’s interests, but at the heart of it all, they were special because she was involved in doing them.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Edwin and Helen Dalton; sister, Debbie Dalton; and brother, James Dalton.
Maureen is survived by her husband of thirty-three years, Cam Mullins; her sons, Kyle (Lana) Mullins, Alex (Ashley) Mullins; grandchildren, Lindyn, Hutch, Jackston, Allye; sister, Diane (Paul) Lutzke; brother, Tim (Ashley) Dalton; sister-in-law, Karen Mullins; and several nieces and nephews.
