Maureen Phillips, loving wife, mother and grandmother, passed away on August 15th in Delray Beach.. She was born in The Bronx, NY on August 16th, 1943, the only daughter of James and Marie O'Shea. She graduated from Roosevelt High School in Yonkers, NY and attended the University Of Florida in Gainesville. There, she was a member of the Phi Mu sorority, and met the love of her life Jim. She was whip smart, even winning big on two TV game shows: "Jeopardy" and "Sale Of Century." She was an excellent cook and baker, a vivid storyteller, and a role model at life and how to live it. Maureen and Jim settled in Miami, raised a family there, and considered it their home. She had a successful career in real estate in Miami and later, in Boca Raton. Her grandparents were immigrants to this country. She had a deep appreciation for travel and how doing so could broaden our understanding of the world and of one another. She visited dozens of places across the globe. Her absolute favorite place was Paris, and she could speak French fluently. She also enjoyed traveling by cruise ship, whether with her friends, or spending time making new ones. Her most treasured title was Grandma. Her grandchildren received her total attention and love, and she made them feel as though they were the most important people in the world. She recognized and celebrated their gifts and talents, and may her love live on within them. Maureen is survived by her husband Jim, her daughter Jennifer Weisbrot (son-in-law Michael Weisbrot), daughter Meredith Reis (son-in-law Sean Reis) and grandchildren Lindsey, Jackson, Brady, Charlie & Mackenzie. She leaves behind a legacy of love,
