Just learned this; one of the filmlands greats; liked her in the original 'Miracle on 34th Street'; I think her first role was with Charles Laughton in 'Jamaica Inn'.

Very sad as always but she had a long life and therefore in her case, it's a life to be celebrated and reflected upon rather than anything else.

We have lost many from the Silver screen and television this year, feels like far more than a typical year to me.

In our place of work only this past week we were all stunned to learn a senior control room engineer lost his life at just 46 years of age.
These type of losses leave you totally saddened and numb for a very long time.
Tragic really tragic for all of his friends and more importantly his family.

She had a good life: we should be so fortunate to reach 95.

Yes, she moved back around 10 years ago, maybe a little longer.

She was a lovely lass, seen her being interviewed and she had a great sense of humour, I still have her performance as Esmeralda
in "Hunchback of Notre Dame" on s/8, she did very well at 95, and left us in her sleep, a really sad loss, but what a legacy she leaves
behind her, R.I.P. Maureen, you have certainly earned it.
