Obituary for Maureen H. Cooley

August 10, 1937 - July 22, 2021
Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania | Age 83


Maureen (Hinnegan) Cooley passed away peacefully on July 22, 2021, at the age of 83.

Maureen is survived by her three children: Monica Cooley, Brendan Cooley (Paulette), and Matt Cooley; four grandchildren: Nicholas, Emma, Aidan, and Abigail; two siblings: Gerald Hinnegan and Sheila Husman. Preceding Maureen in death are her husband Augustine "Gus" Cooley and her brother, Michael Hinnegan. She is also survived by her former son-in-law Leo Lesniewski and former daughter-in-law Dianne Miller.

Maureen was a kind and gentle soul who had a strong and consistent desire to help others – both friends and strangers alike. Nearly everyone she touched is eager to share a fond memory of her warm approach to life. She will be fondly remembered for her passionate support of political campaigns and causes; her masterful bread-baking skills; and the hand-crafted gifts (knit socks, crocheted blankets, and sewn curtains, etc.) that she shared with so many.

Maureen was born in Northeast Philadelphia and moved to West Palm Beach, Florida at age 14 – upon the death of her father. She settled in Norristown, PA in 1962, after marrying Gus. Most recently she lived in Lafayette Hill, PA.

Relatives and friends are invited to share in Maureen's Life Celebration Memorial Service on Saturday August 7, at Boyd Horrox-Givnish Funeral Home of East Norriton, 200 West Germantown Pike, 610-277-7000.
