Obituary for Maureen C. McGowan

February 8, 2017
Willow Grove, Pennsylvania


Maureen C., of Willow Grove, on February 8, 2017 at the Abington Jefferson Healthcare Hospice, Warminster, PA. Beloved daughter of the late Joseph J. Sr. and Catherine M. (nee Murphy) McGowan. Loving sister of Joseph J. Jr. (Linda), Rev. William F. (Joan), James P. (Carol) and Mary Regina McGowan, Ten nieces and nephews and one great nephew.

Maureen possessed the great ability to generate friends everywhere that she went. She never went into a room, she entered the room, and once she met you, you were a friend for life.

Always active in her church and the community, Maureen was a volunteer at St. Cecilia's school and the EcoTarium in Worcester, MA. She was a long time employee of Associated Production Service (APS).

The focus of her social and community involvement was always her participation in Special Olympics Volleyball and the Rotary Special Athletes. It was here that she made many of her lifelong friends. She has traveled extensively, from Hawaii to the Caribbean to Europe, with her family and the Rotary Special Athletes Travel Group.

Maureen took great pride in being an independent person and for twenty years lived in an apartment that was overseen by Human Achievement Project (HAP).
Family and friends are invited to Maureen's Life Celebration, Saturday, February 11th, beginning at 9:30 AM from St. Helena's Church, 1489 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell, PA 19422. Interment Holy Cross Cemetery, Yeadon, PA.

In lieu of flowers, a donation in Maureen's memory be made to Rotary Special Athletes, 102 Quince Drive, Hatboro, PA 19040, would be appreciated by the family.
