Maureen Gail VanDemark Krom was called home on March 16, 2020 at The Northeast Center for Rehabilitation and Brain Injury after a tragic accident. Maureen was born January 20, 1949 in Kingston, a daughter of the late Kenneth and Ellen McSpirit VanDemark. She is predeceased by her brother, Kenneth VanDemark, Jr.
A Hurley resident for a great deal of her life, Maureen was no stranger to living near cows, cornfields and country life general. On July 7, 1973 she married the love of her life, Bruce, who remained her most faithful companion until her passing. Maureen had a great love for animals, especially cats. She took great pity and compassion on every stray animal she encountered and would find them homes or kept the animal herself. Those who knew Maureen often joked that she had enough experience to be a Veterinary Technician. She took care of diabetic cats, administered intravenous fluids, insulin shots and even cared for cats with cardiac deformities. Maureen loved cooking and was known for her delicious hot dog sauce. She loved attending flea markets, shopping, and most of all, spending time with her grandchildren.
She leaves behind her dear husband, Bruce, her daughter Danielle Krom Coffey Brown (Kenneth), twin granddaughters Kalleigh and Starrleigh Coffey, her baby brother, Kelvin VanDemark (Cindy Andreassen), a brother Duane VanDemark (Sherry), her sister Beverley Jean Daley (Arthur), as well as nephews Shane Daley and Arthur Daley and numerous nieces.
