Maureen Elizabeth Daily, 66, passed away suddenly on March 11, 2023, in Houston, Texas. Maureen was born in Denver, Colorado on May 29, 1956, to F. Regis Daily, Sr., and Betty Kane Daily. Maureen relocated to Clear Lake City in 1981 from Greeley, Colorado, where she spent her childhood. She is survived by her sisters, Sheila Daily Dell’Osso of Clear Lake City, Marcee Daily Chipman of Vichy, France and her brother, F. Regis (Jayar) Daily, Jr., of Houston, along with seven nieces and nephews and eighteen grand nieces and nephews, each of whom were the highlight of her life.
Maureen graduated from Greeley Central High School. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Education from Loretta Heights College in Denver, Colorado. At the time of her death, she was a few months short of retirement from MD Anderson, where she worked for the last 25 years as a Research Data Analyst for blood diseases. Maureen was dedicated to her career and including her previous employment at the UT Health Science Center, she was just shy of completing 40 years of service in the Houston Medical Center working for the University of Texas.
Maureen was very devoted to her family and loved spending time with her many friends. She enjoyed traveling, playing duplicate bridge, bunco and reading. She was a longtime member of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, which she thoroughly enjoyed, along with her Book Club. Maureen was also an active member of St. Bernadette Catholic Church in Clear Lake since moving to Houston.
