Born in: Colorado Springs, CO
Resided in: Rye, CO

Maureen Kate Maroney, our beloved daughter, sister, and friend returned back to our Heavenly Father, due to complications of cancer, on Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at her home in Rye, Colorado.  She was surrounded by her loving family.

Maureen was a special baby born on January 14, 1981 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

She graduated from East High school and worked with Pueblo Diversified Industries over 20 years.  Maureen was also a honorary member of the Greenhorn Valley Lions Club and participated in many activities.

She was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Rye.  She received her honorary Young Women’s Medallion with help from other young women in the stake.  She loved to sing church songs and participate in all of the activities.

Maureen enjoyed traveling with her mom and dad to many places, as long as it wasn’t in an airplane.

Her favorite things in life were listening to ABBA and the Dixie Chicks (attended four of their concerts) and watching Mamma Mia.

All who came into contact with her appreciated her firm handshake, hugs, and beautiful smile.  Her unconditional love she showed to everybody made her beloved by all.

Maureen is survived by her parents Dennis and Paula Maroney; siblings, Denise (James) Murphy, Kevin (Anne) Maroney, Steven (Jennifer) Maroney, Robin (Steven) McCandless, Erika (Jon) Pattee, and Matthew (Janine) Maroney; 23 nieces and nephews and one great-niece.
