Maureen V. Belli Klim was born May 22, 1955, in Newfoundland, Canada, a daughter of Steve and Helen O’Rourke Belli.
Maureen’s strengths and spirit will be carried on in her children, whom she deeply cherished. She leaves behind a son, Jason Vaughn of Struthers and her daughters, Victoria Kilm of Poland, McKinsie (Nick) Gilha-Klim of Stow and Melissa (fiancé, Evan Miller) Klim of New Castle and granddaughter, Zelda Stout-Vaughn of McDonald.

Her vivacious spirit, booming laughter, and unforgettable personality changed any atmosphere she entered, for the better. Maureen was a guardian of family traditions; especially through food, as a marvelous chef and baker who opened her home to family and friends.
After receiving her license in 1972, she became an accomplished cosmetologist, beloved by her lifelong clients and she graduated Campbell Memorial High School in 1973. Maureen’s dedication to this lifelong work was steadfast, so she could provide for her five children.
