Nancy O'Dell Remembers - Maureen Starkey Tigrett - Netflix
Maureen “Mo” Starkey Tigrett (born Mary Cox; 4 August 1946 – 30 December 1994) was a hairdresser from Liverpool, England, best known as the first wife of Ringo Starr, the Beatles' drummer. When she was a trainee hairdresser in Liverpool, she met Starr at The Cavern Club, where the Beatles were playing. Starr proposed marriage at the Ad-Lib Club in London, on 20 January 1965. They married at the Caxton Hall Register Office, London, in 1965, and divorced in 1975. First living at 34 Montagu Square, Marylebone, the Starrs bought Sunny Heights, in St George's Hill, Weybridge. In 1973, they bought Tittenhurst Park from John Lennon. They had three children together: sons Zak and Jason, and daughter Lee. As a favour to Starr, Frank Sinatra taped a special version of “The Lady Is a Tramp” re-written by Sammy Cahn for Maureen's 22nd birthday in 1968. Maureen received unsuccessful treatment for leukemia at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington. She died of the disease at home on 30 December 1994 at age 48. Her four children, mother, husband and ex-husband Starr were at her bedside when she died.

Mary Cox was born on 4 August 1946, in Liverpool, England. She was the only child of Joseph Cox, a ship's steward, and Florence Cox (née Barrett). As a teenager, she remembered turning her school uniform around to make it look like a frock, and paying a school friend ten cigarettes a day to teach her how to “smoke properly”. She left convent school when she was 14 years old, changing her name to Maureen when she began her career as a trainee manicurist/hairdresser at Ashley du Pre, in Liverpool, but was known as “Mo” to her friends.
