Maureen Sheeran (1949-2020)

Maureen Elizabeth Sheeran, 71, of Cold Spring, died Nov. 16.

Born in Brooklyn on July 16, 1949, she was the daughter of Richard and Marie (Bulger) Miller. In August 1972, she married John Sheeran, who died May 2. She had formerly lived in Queens, Wantagh, Manhattan, Jeffersonville and Garrison.

After earning a bachelor’s degree in history from Good Counsel College in White Plains, she began her career in information technology roles in the insurance and banking industries. She was later a substitute teacher in the Jeffersonville-Youngsville Central School and Garrison school districts and a tour guide at West Point. She also tutored many students in Garrison.

Maureen and John shared a love of music, history, travel and the arts. She believed that “everyone should be kinder than necessary,” her family said.

She is survived by her daughters Brittany (Joseph) of Ashland, Massachusetts, and Mariel, who lives in California, as well as her grandchildren, Sienna, Tristen, Hayes, Dexter, Chase and Tatum. She also is survived by her sister, Bernadette. A son, Cailean Sheeran, died before her.

The family is planning a joint memorial service for Maureen and John in the spring. They ask that friends pay tribute to Maureen through an act of kindness.

  1. I find it disturbing that you have the need to edit and screw up obituaries that are written by grieving families. We spend hours scrutinizing over every word to ensure it’s perfect only for it to be overridden with poor grammar and bad edits.
