  1. Dear Christine and Family:
    I have been thinking of you all since I heard about the accident last week. I feel so fortunate to have got to be around and spend time with “Momma Mumma”. I always looked forward to her smile and funny story or two she had to share with me when she would come into the Advantage Personnel office. Her annual delivery of cookies around X-Mas time were also a big hit with all of our staff! She will be greatly missed and I hope you find some comfort in each other and the good memories you have with Maurine! My deepest sympathy to you and all of your extended family.

  2. Christine and Keren and families,
    We are so very sorry about the death of your mother, mother in law, grandmother.
    She was a lovely Christian lady.
    We are praying that God will give you all His comfort and peace as you grieve.
    Love, Prayers, Blessings, and Sympathy,
    David and Carol Quam

  3. prayers for the family during your time of mourning, but I smile at the thought of Maureen dancing on the streets of gold with her savior. I worked with Maureen at Back to the Bible and had great respect for her. I enjoyed her growl as I was teasing her because I knew just below the surface she was really smiling. She was a great lady.

  4. Our thoughts will always be with all of you. Maureen was a special person to us. Maureen and her dear husband Winn were with us every Sat. night for Bible study when we first knew them. For five years they were always there as good friends and mentors. We always knew we could call on them to pray with us. Maureen was there for me when I was sized down at my job and invited me to a weekly Bible study with her.
    We will miss her,but she’s safe with our Lord.

  5. Keren, Stan, Cassie and Zach.

    Thinking of you with deepest sympathy. McKenna and Cassie played basketball a time back and we still run into you guys off and on. Someone told me about your Mom and I am so sorry to hear it.

    Hold close all the great memories.

  6. Maurine was a faithful servant and a joy to know during our years together at Back to the Bible. She will always be remembered for her love for others and dedication to her work which were an encouragement to everyone around her.

    We are so sorry we cannot be with you tomorrow because of a previous commitment.

    Remembering you in deepest sympathy and prayer.

  7. Keren and Stan,
    Our hearts go out to you at this time. We are praying that God’s peace which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. It is because of Him that we have hope in seeing your mom and dad again. Praise Him. We just want you to know that we are thinking of you and praying for you today.
    Robin and Lavon

  8. Though Maurine was snatched out of our arms, she was safe in the arms of the Lord. I worked with her at Back to the Bible and saw her live her faith. May the God of all comfort give you peace.

  9. I am so sorry for your loss. Maurine was in my BSF group this year and the last image I have of her is standing in front of me that Wednesday asking about my loss of my brother that had just passed away the day before Valentines Day. She had been praying daily for my brother and my family. If there is anything I can do to help please let me know. I will continue to pray for your family. When the pastor mentioned Maurine’s intensive care room number 213 I cried. That was the day my brother passed.

  10. Keren,Stan, Zach, Cassie…..I just heard the news :( I had seen some news coverage and thought the vehicle looked vaguely familiar but couldn’t think why. I wish I had known so I could have held you up in prayer. I will be praying for you all over the next year, and for the other family member who was in the car. I will miss the occasional times of seeing Maurine and I am sure you will all be missing her lots. This was just so unexpected to us, but God has his knowledge above ours and I know he was with her then. I will enjoy greeting her in heaven when the time comes. May God give you peace that passes understanding and beautiful memories everytime you think of her along with that hope you have of reuniting.

  11. Keren, Christine & Families, I just read about Maurine and wanted to get in touch with you. Keren, I was your horse 4H leader many years ago when we lived on SW 12 in Lincoln. Win & Maurine were wonderful friends from back at Pleasant Hill School when you and Scott & Todd Capps all went to school together. Mrs. Sell was your teacher. I have thought about your parents often. I am very sorry for your loss. God only takes the best. Your parents are the best. Please feel free to contact me anytime. Christine was younger and I remember her also. We still have Pioneer Stables in Lincoln,but I am currently living in Mack,CO. My email is You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Hold the good times in your heart forever. Jan Capps Nelson
