ANDERSON, SC - Maureen Blake – Pereiro, went home to the Lord on May 30th, 2020. She was born Sept. 25, 1962 in Toronto Ontario and Moved to Hudson with her family. She graduated from Hudson High school and earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing and management from Ohio University. Maureen was a marketing executive and business consultant for over 30 years with several companies.
Maureen’s deep Christian faith was always on display and she loved the Lord Jesus with all of her heart. She praised God just as much in the storms of her life as she did with any blessings and favor which came her way.
Maureen loved her family and was a very kind, genuine, and generous person. She would always smile and loved young people and elderly people alike. She would always tell an elderly woman “how beautiful” they looked or an elderly gentleman how “handsome” they were. She always asked younger people what their “dreams and aspirations” were, and loved to listen intently on their answers, and wouldn’t take “I don’t know” as a response. She would pry out a small dream of a young person and would always tell them that they would succeed at whatever they chose to do. She would go over to a person sitting alone somewhere and ask them if they were ok. Many times they were missing someone, or they had a bad day. She always sought to brighten them up. She donated to many Christian causes and bought many meals secretly for homeless people, soldiers, or elderly people sitting at a restaurant. She firmly believed in Christian fellowship and reaching out to people less fortunate.
Maureen’s family is ever so grateful for the entire staff at Interim Hospice of South Carolina and the wonderful CNA’s from Anointed hands, they were all truly amazing!
Maureen is survived by her loving family; her husband Stephen, Her Daughter Lindsay Gonska, Lynchburg Virginia, Son David Gonska, Los Angeles California, Sister Catherine Agnor and her husband Ross, Hudson Ohio, Brother Paul Blake and his wife Kelly, Charlotte North Carolina, Brother Jim Blake and his wife Amie, Lexington Kentucky, Stepdaughters, Brittany, Alexis and Hailey Pereiro, Clearwater Florida and Brooke Pereiro, Yonkers New York.
