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.

Entrusted to the care of Keyser Funeral & Cremation Service, Kingston, NY where family and friends may visit on Sunday March 22, 2020 from 1pm to 4pm. In the interest of public safety and based upon New York State and Federal guidelines, Mrs. Krom's Mass of Christian Burial, and the graveside committal service will be held privately on Monday. In lieu of flowers, please make any contributions to an animal shelter or animal charity of your choice. To leave a condolence for the family, please visit

Danielle often talked about what a wonderful person her mother was--her talents as a "cat whisperer," cook, devoted grandmother, and so much more. So sorry you have lost the woman you referred to as your "best friend."

CandleMaureen was always so sweet to me, as a child tagging along after Danielle and my sister, as a young adult when I was visiting from college, and finally when my job took me back to NY as an adult and I was able to spend time with the Krom family again. I will never forget her hospitality, patience and humor. She was a wonderful person and my thoughts and prayers are with Bruce, Danielle and all of the family and friends that are saddened by this great loss.

Mr. Krom, no words can take away the pain you're feeling in the lost of your lovely wife.... Know that God will never leave you.
Sometimes we don't know why things happen.
I pray that GOD will give you the strength to go on. May his blessing alway be with you.
My sincere sympathy to you and your family. "GRIEVING GIVES US TIME TO HEAL"......

Elizabeth on Mar 17, 2020

I will always remember how welcoming and kind Mrs. Krom was when we would come over to play with Danielle. She would make us a huge glass of iced tea and we would chat and be silly giggly girls. She was patient with us and I always felt like she was glad to see us. Your family is in our prayers.
