Memories Timeline


  1. To Steve and the entire Collazuol family my sincere and heartfelt condolences. May God welcome her with open arms.

  2. So sorry Jim and family on the passing of your sister. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Share and enjoy all the memories.

  3. While reading the Record this morning, I learned Maureen's passing. We were classmates at Fort Lee High School. She died too young. I am very sorry for your loss.

  4. I graduated Fort Lee High School with Maureen, and although I haven't seen her in over 30 years, I feel that I need to say a few words about Maureen. I remember her wonderful smile & outgoing personality. Everyone liked Maureen; what was there not to like???

    At one time in her life, she worked in a Fort Lee Diner. I remember having coffee with her, and when the check came for a cup of coffee, Maureen left a $5.00 bill as a tip. She said, "I know what it's like to be a waitress, and they should be appreciated".

    To this day, when I over tip a waiter or waitress, I think of Maureen.

    Maureen is now serving God.

    My condolences to her family & friends…

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. I flew with "Moe" at Tower Air many years ago. She was an absolute joy to work with. I have such fond memories of her and her laughter. May she rest in peace. May her family know how many people are better for knowing her

  6. 40 years a dear friend. Thank you for all the adventure and fun we shared. I will miss you and love you forever….Paul

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. Moe & I worked together and became friends at Tower Air. Although it's been many years, I will always remember the adventures around the world and good times we shared. Moe was a true force; she had an unbelievable zest for life and a heart of gold. May God bless her beautiful soul. I pray for your peace and comfort at this most sad and difficult time.

  8. I spent my entire schooling from kindergarten through high school with Maureen. Always energetic, outgoing and vivacious! It seemed all the boys wanted to chase her around the school yard! I had the pleasure of seeing her a few times in the past few years at The Fort Lee Athletic Club annual Christmas party. She was still as vivacious as ever! Not only was she a great tipper as Ken Messina said, but she was a great looker as well!

    Rest in peace Moe!

    Sincerely, Dean.

  9. My deepest sympathy to the family. I didn't know Maureen personally, but I do know the pain of losing a loved one in death. I hope that you find comfort from family and friends and from "the God of all comfort" who promises us at Revelation 21:3,4 that death will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry nor pain will be anymore. All these will be things of the past.

  10. I am so saddened and sorry to here of Mo passing. Although we only new Mo and minni for a short time. When at her home in Bayville she was always a pleasure to hangout with.
    Please accept my condolences and prayers for her family.

  11. I can't believe your gone.
    I first met you at the diner, and we became friends after that.
    We spent many a night going out and partying, those were the days! Those great super bowl parties at your house.
    One of the last times I saw you before leaving NJ was at my parents house. We took down the drapes from my parents living room, you thought I was crazy to tell you that you could make money selling them on ebay….but you did!!!
    Although I left NJ in 2003, I often thought of you.
    I just happened to google your name, and found this.
    I'm shocked, there are tears streaming down my face.
    You were a great friend to me.
    I hope to see you again, my dear Mau!
