She was born in 1941 on August 15 to the late Leroy Sinclair Nauss and Alma Jean Nauss (Kaulbach) of Conquerall. Maisie was caring, funny and made friends easily.

When her two boys were young, she was an active mom, chaperoning field trips and encouraging their sports careers - especially soccer. She maintained close relationships with both of her sons as they reached adulthood and started their own families. She was fiercely proud of her granddaughters, and made sure they knew it.

For the past few years, Maisie resided at Mahone Nursing Home, where she briefly lived under the same roof as her mother until Alma passed away in 2015. While living at the nursing home, Maisie discovered a hidden talent for painting. She had an eye for bright, colourful outdoor scenes.
