What you need to know about Maureen



After 35 years as a Registered Nurse, Maureen Kures is no stranger to end-of-life issues. She has seen first-hand the devastation that can occur when families don’t have potentially difficult discussions with family members – the same discussions that could have helped everyone weather the loss of a loved one in a more peaceful manner.

No doubt about it – end-of-life conversations are the elephant in your family room and can be challenging. Maureen’s strength lies in her ability to help families calmly approach topics that are difficult to discuss. Her expertise in reducing drama, trauma, and chaos has helped individuals get their affairs

in order while getting their families in alignment. Maureen created Radiant Mourning to be an advocate for end-of-life planning.

Today, families hire Maureen to protect and empower them through facilitated discussions, planning, and preparation for end-of-life transitions. Her uncommon advocacy provides safety, clarity, hope, and guidance to her clients.
