LAWRENCE, IND. Maureen Ann (Shutrump) Bartolo, wife and mother, passed away from natural causes on Sunday, Sept. 6, 2015.
Born on July 26, 1958, Maureen is survived by her husband, John, also of Lawrence; a son, Kristopher M. of Boardman; a daughter, Sarah S. of Indianapolis; and son J. Joseph Jr. of Lawrence.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Uletine M. (Portman) and John P. Shutrump; and a son, Matthew, all of Canfield.
Maureen was a sibling of six, John Paul Jr. of Austintown, Yvonne Moore of Poland, Laurel Campbell of Washington, Pa., Jeffrey of Chula Vista, Calif., M. Celeste McConnell of Wilmington, N.C., and Colleen L. of Columbus. Maureen also leaves two grand-children; 15 nieces and nephews; eight grand-nieces and grand-nephews, and six surrogate grandchildren.
Maureen fought not only for her family, but families around the state. Maureen had the capacity to listen without judgment. Her motherly instincts began at an early age. She always made sure that everyone had someone to trust and rely on. She was a surrogate mother to many, providing a safe haven to those who needed it. She would rather not eat than allow anyone to spend a holiday alone.
Maureen was a member of the Indiana Bar and most recently was a volunteer with Indiana Legal Services, Inc. and the Indiana Law Project.
Rascal Flatts said it well about Maureen:
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to, Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small, You never need to carry more than you can hold, And while youre out there getting where youre getting to, I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too, Yeah, this is my wish.
The family wishes that memorial donations be made to the March of Dimes, 6330 E 75th St. No. 306, Indianapolis, IN 46250.
We will miss you always. Please wait for those that love you and those that you love.
Arrangements entrusted to the Indiana Funeral Care and Crematory.
