Obituary of Maureen Lee Quider
Maureen Lee (Losey) Quider passed away on May 27, 2021 in Buffalo NY. She spent her last days surrounded by her husband and children, both in person and in spirit, which was a beautiful tribute to her life and exactly what she would have wanted.
She was born on January 9, 1939 in Nelsonville, Ohio to Melvin and Lillian Losey. She met David Quider in 1959 at Prospect Avenue Baptist Church, and married him in 1960. They would go on to be married for 61 years and produce 4 children.
Maureen loved her children fiercely, of that there can be no argument. She often said that you should never part with someone, even for the day, without making sure they understand how much you love them. She lived her life this way and left all of us with no doubt in our minds as to how she felt about us.
Maureen leaves behind David, her husband of over six decades, as well as her children, David II (Linda), Jonathan, Heidi (Jeff), and Rebecca, and her two brothers, Lloyd and Butch. She was predeceased by her sister Yvonne. She also leaves behind 5 Grandchildren – Steve, Betsy, Matthew, Avery and Adam, each of whom she loved dearly.
Maureen will be remembered for her genuine concern for others, her big heart, her sassiness, her ambition, her absolute love of Christmas (and the copious amounts of cookies and candy she made every year), and her faith and devotion to the ministry she and David spent their lives serving.
In the words of her husband, Maureen had a love of truth and sought out people who were honest with her. She pursued truth in every aspect of her life.
A celebration of life will be held on June 12th from 1-4pm at Tonawanda Indian Baptist Church, 565 Bloomingdale Road, Basom, NY 14013. All are welcome.
