Maureen Buley Obituary, Death- I am writing this with a heavy heart to tell you that early Wednesday morning, my lovely, loving, and kind mother, Maureen Sue Buley, passed away and made her journey. It was the year 76. We are all burdened and inconsolable at this time. My mother was THE most generous, genuine, kind, and loving person I have ever met.
She was born on the 24th of January 1947 in Chicago, Illinois. She welcomed everyone into both her heart and her house. Because of her and the way she felt, I became the person I am today. On a daily basis, she showered our family with her kind spirit and unending affection. She had me when she was 20, and by the time she was 25, she had also given birth to my brother and sister. She always told me that we grew up together. It is impossible to put into words how important she was to all of us.
She devoted her life to her husband, children, and grandchildren, as well as to Claude. The unexpected death of Claude occurred in November of last year, and despite our best efforts, we were unable to make up for the loss she felt. They shared a profound passion for one another, and I have no doubt that they are still together. I could go on for hundreds of more words, but I’ll just say that my mother bestowed upon me the wonderful and irreplaceable gift, lesson, and blessing of having a generous heart and a kind disposition.
When compared to the impression you make on another person as a result of your thoughtfulness, compassion, empathy, connection, and presence in their life, the accomplishments one achieves in their lifetime are not nearly as meaningful as the money, belongings, and social standing they bring with them. This is the true test of whether or not one will live forever. Because the spirit of that energy influences and lives on for all time in every human person that you contact, and you can’t help but pass it on.
It would appear that the world was improved as a result of the adjustments and contributions that were made by my mum. I have decided that for the rest of my life, I will pattern my behavior after the way that mother brought me up, and I will dedicate it to her. Thank you so much, mom. Simply being in your presence has been the greatest gift that could have been given to me by anyone.
