Maureen Elizabeth Daily

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.

  6. I just don’t have the words. I’m so surprised and grieving her loss. Moe was one of my first and closest friends in Houston. We shared dreams, laughter and tears, at one time an apartment, and she was with me when I met my husband. I will miss her dearly! Unfortunately, John and I are out of the country and not able to get back in time for the funeral. Our heart goes out to all her family and friends.

  8. I was shocked and sad to learn of Mo’s passing. I met her through my sister, Denise, when she joined us and our parents for dinner to talk about her trip to Ireland. It was then that I told myself that I would visit the home of my ancestors, too. I will miss her and have dear memories of conversing with her during our many BUNCO games.

  9. It’s just so hard to know Moe won’t be with us anymore. She had such a beautiful influence on my life – got me involved at St.B’s, introduced me to my husband, laughed her contagious giggle with me on the tennis court, bunco friend for 30 years, carpool and bus buddy to work at MD Anderson. I can’t imagine life without her. So grateful we recently lunched together and visited at bunco. Hug your loved ones. I’ll miss you, Moe 💜

  11. My thoughts and prayers go out to Maureen’s family specially her nephew and nieces that she loved so dearly. We worked in the same department and it was always a joy to stop by and have a small talk with her. One of the greatest memories of Maureen is when she dance with my husband in a Christmas department party. Therefore, from my husband and I receive our deepest sympathy. Rest in Peace in the arms of our dear Lord and Savior Jesus-Christ.

  12. I will truly miss Maureen and our time together having a meal or snacks together at my house or at a nearby restaurant. Over the years, we shared time in taking care of her sister, Sheila, and, brother-in-law, Nick’s house, while they were out of town. And, we were rewarded many times wifh a delicious meal by the both of them afterwards. She was a dear friend and I know my deceased husband, Jerry, cared for her as well. After morning Mass today, some of her friends from St. Bernadette’s Church were expressing their deep sorrow at the loss of a beautirul friend. I concur. May our Lord grant her his eternal Peace and Love.
