July 12, 1936 ~ June 19, 2014|
Maureen Daines Hodgen, 77, passed away peacefully June 19, 2014, at her home in Bountiful Utah.
Maureen was the first child of Spencer and Sarah Daines, born July 12, 1936, in Logan, Utah. She attended schools in Logan and graduated from Utah State University with a bachelor's degree in home economics education. Maureen served an LDS Mission to Sao Paulo, Brazil, in the early 1960s. She worked in various businesses in California before returning to Utah in 1969 to work in the Real Estate Division of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City until her retirement in 1995. Maureen was married to Robert H. Hodgen in the Logan LDS Temple on March 23, 1993, and they enjoyed many good times and travels around the Mainland United States and Hawaii before his death in 2002. Maureen accepted many church callings in the Bountiful 16th Ward. For her, the most important things in life were her testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, her family whom she loved and admired and being a citizen in the United States of America. Maureen will always hold a special place in the hearts and minds of her many friends and family as a kind, loving and generous woman. She was especially devoted to, and loved dearly by, her nieces and nephews, many of whom traveled from near and far to see her before her passing.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and her brother, Richard. Maureen is survived by her siblings, Deanna Winn (David), Spencer Daines (Sheila), Ron Daines (Robyn), Carol Quistberg (Duane) and Kathleen Parker (Russell), her sister-in-law Laura Daines (Richard), her step-children, Dale Hodgen, Mark Hodgen, Trecia Ann Burkett and Neal Hodgen, and her many beloved nieces and nephews.
Maureen and her family would like to offer a special thanks to Verna Benson, a mission companion and lifelong friend, who came to live with and care for her during her final months, and to Good Shepherd Hospice, especially Nurse Reggie Clemons.
