Maureen was born in Teaneck, NJ, and grew up in Rego Park, NY. She married her husband, Daniel, in 1965 and they later settled in Bronxville, NY, where they raised their family. Once widowed, she moved to Rye, NY where she lived until 2001 and then she moved to Manhattan with a summer home in Sea Girt. In 2018, she made Sea Girt her permanent residence. Maureen worked as a Bookkeeper for St. Joseph's Church in Bronxville, NY for many years.
Maureen was a passionate community leader and philanthropist. When her children were young, she was both a Brownie leader and a Cub Scout leader, as well a puppeteer for Kids on the Block, a program to teach children acceptance of differences in themselves and in others. She served as former president of the Mother’s Club of St. Joseph’s Church in Bronxville and always enjoyed performing in their annual variety show, even appearing onstage as Mae West.
Once her children were grown, she became very involved in other charitable organizations. She was a former president of the Women’s Club of Rye, and former Board Member of the National Ladies of Charity of the United States, and former president of the Ladies of Charity of the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of NY.
She was an avid tennis player, learned to ski in her 50’s and loved to explore the world with the St Joseph’s travel group. She enjoyed crossword and jigsaw puzzles and spending time with her family.
Maureen is predeceased by her husband Daniel Driskill and is survived by her daughters Susan Donney (Randolph) and Jennifer Coppola (John), son Daren Driskill, sister Jo-Ann Flynn, and grandchildren Christopher, Nina, and Erin Donney.
