Mary “Maureen” Starkey Tigrett (née Cox) [08.04.46-12.30.94]
"I’ve lived through a lot, and I’ve learnt a lot. I’d say I’m a happier person these days. I’m happy with my life now. I’ve learnt to be contented. I’ve matured."
"Here I was a silly sixteen-year-old hairdresser dating the most popular drummer in Liverpool. Our first date was a little silly. We just walked around the block for a while, gossiping and talking because he had to go back in the Cavern and play again. After a couple of months, I began to realize that I was infatuated with him." -on relationship with Ringo Starr
“Far from being a shy little thing, Maureen was talkative, full of laughter and great fun: we all liked her enormously and thought she was good for Ringo […] Maureen, who was one of the most down-to-earth, honest people I ever knew, became my closest friend.” - Cynthia Lennon
