Maureen Weisner, age 59, a twenty-year resident of Hopewell Junction, died on September 5th, 2019 following a long and unrelenting battle against Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).
Maureen was born in the Bronx, New York, on October 16th, 1959, and was the daughter of Raymond and Jeannette (VanWagner) Turnbull. She spent her early years in Hartsdale and Carmel, New York where she attended local public schools. Maureen was loved by all and was especially known for her boundless sense of humor and joy this imparted to all she met.
A hairstylist by trade, Maureen owned and operated Country Cutters Hair Salon, in Hopewell Junction for almost ten years. To her many clients, Maureen was known not only for her incredible haircuts but also for her lighthearted manner and irresistible wit. To know Maureen was to love Maureen.
On December 6th, 1980 in White Plains, New York, Maureen married the love of her life, George Weisner, who survives her at home. The pride and joy of her life, however, remained to the end, her two children. She is survived by her children and their spouses, Lindsey and Chris Denneen of New Windsor, and Matthew and Deborah Weisner of Schofield Barracks, Hawaii; her grandchildren, Emma Denneen, and Raegan, Matthew Jr. and Colton Weisner; and many other loving family members and friends.
She was a parishioner of St. Kateri Tekakwitha Church in LaGrangeville.
Her favorite role in life was that of “Nana”. She loved her grandchildren with all of her heart and would spoil them to no end. She was looking forward to the birth of her granddaughter, Shea Kathryne Denneen, in the coming few weeks.
Calling hours will be held on Monday from 2-4 and 7-9pm at the McHoul Funeral Home, Inc., 895 Route 82, Hopewell Junction. The Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Tuesday at 10am at St. Kateri Tekakwitha Church, 1925 Route 82, LaGrangeville followed by entombment at Ferncliff Cemetery.
