Born in Wilmington, Delaware on March 9, 1956, Maureen was a daughter of the late Marino Massetti and Julia Joiner Massetti. She was a loving wife and devoted homemaker.
Known for her kind, giving and compassionate nature, Maureen went out of her way to make others feel special. Whether cooking a delicious meal for her family and friends or preparing a homemade birthday cake which she personally delivered, she took great pleasure in caring for others. Maureen shared a special bond with children and young adults. She took the time to listen and prided herself in giving sound advice about making positive choices in life. She was an avid animal lover, and over the years, provided a loving home to her pet dogs. In her leisure time, Maureen adored spending time with her husband and especially loved their visits to the movie theater together.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Michael Massetti. Maureen is survived by her beloved husband of 39 years, Michael J. Gurney; brothers, Mario Massetti, Jr. of Wilmington, Julian Massetti (Tammy) of New Castle and James Massetti (Robin) of New Castle; sister, Amelia Massetti (Mack Pugh) of Newport; nephews, Michael Massetti, Jr. and Christopher Pugh (Jenny); nieces, Alexis Massetti and Ariel Massetti; and great nephews, Michael Massetti III and Antonio Massetti.
