Born Sept. 25, 1942 in Rochester, Maureen spent most of her life living in Penn Yan up until five years ago, when she moved to be closer to her family, especially her grandchildren, in the New Smyrna Beach area of Florida. She attended St. Michael’s School and Penn Yan Academy, and worked both at Allstate Insurance in Rochester and Penn Yan Express as a keypunch operator, and for over 30 years worked at Stork Insurance, where she was a friendly face to many of the people of Penn Yan.
She enjoyed shopping, decorating, and sharing stories, laughter, and a glass of wine with her large circle of friends, both longtime and newly made ones.
She is survived by her husband of 51 years, Richard “Dick” Jepsen; her daughter, Kiersten Custis, and son-in-law, John Custis Jr.; her son, Jason, and daughter-in-law, Tuneeshaw Jepsen; her brother, Dennis Quenan, and wife, Carol; and sister, Shelia Curran, and husband, Robert. She was a loving Nana to grandchildren Molly Parke and Jensen Quinn Custis; grandpups Trinity, Sayde, and Mandy; and a fun aunt to many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her brother, Philip, and parents, Thomas and Helene Quenan.
