In Memory of Maureen Baugh

Our hearts are heavy as we share that Adult Librarian, Maureen Baugh, unexpectedly passed away on September 21. Maureen has been a part of the FCL family since 1984, working in virtually every department of the library, and touching countless lives. She was overwhelmingly kind, dedicated, and strong in spirit. She loved this library and this community, and we can’t imagine it without her.

A memorial contribution in honor of Maureen may be made to: LifeCare Christian Center, 33300 Warren Road – Suite 17, Westland, Michigan 48185, or Farmington Community Library, 32737 West Twelve Mile Road, Farmington Hills, Michigan 48334. If writing a check, please place her name “Maureen Baugh” in the memo. In addition, donations may be made to Little Free Library.
