Obituary: Girtz, Maureen
Spokane Valley resident Maureen Girtz or as most knew her “Mo” passed away July 13, 2012.
Maureen was born October 14, 1949, in Spokane, WA to Wayne and Rosemary Faulkner.
She graduated from University High School in the Spokane Valley and continued her education at Sacred Heart School of Nursing. Her compassion for people, which was beyond belief, kept her in the Nursing field throughout her life, until her final position as a Nursing Supervisor at Cancer Care Northwest in the Spokane Valley, where she enjoyed everyone that she worked with.
Maureen will always be remembered for her great smile, caring heart, and her willingness to do anything for anyone. She was first and foremost a mother, who loved her children and grandchildren very much, she was a loving wife and best friend to her husband, and a loving sister.
She loved the outdoors, going camping and riding her 4-wheeler. As a “Bounder”, a group of family and friends, she went on 4 wheeling trips to the Sand Dunes in Florence and St. Anthony’s Oregon, Moab Utah, and her favorite ride at Elsie Lake.
Maureen was preceded in death by her father Wayne Faulkner.
She is survived by her husband of 29 years, Mike; her loving sons, Darrin, Paul, and Wayne Good; Darrin’s wife Faith and Paul’s wife Amanda; her grandchildren Zach, Jared, Izzy, and Elly; her stepchildren Chris Girtz and Amanda Potter; her mother Rosemary Faulkner; her seven brothers and sisters; Karen, John, Michael, Christine, Janice, Brian, Jeff and their spouses; and her large extended family and friends.
The family would like to thank everyone at Cancer Care Northwest and Valley Hospital for the care that Maureen received throughout her battle with Cancer.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday July 21st, at 11:00am at St. John Vianney Catholic Church, 503 N. Walnut Rd. Spokane Valley, WA, with a reception to follow.
