Long-time Valleyite Maureen McAdam Passes Away

Maureen (Coburn) McAdam was born January 23rd, 1956, in Riverside, New Jersey. She moved to California in 1966 and was a longtime resident of Duarte. She married her husband Wayne in 1976.  Maureen worked for more than thirty years as a medical transcriptionist, a job which allowed her to take care of her daughter Heather at home. She greatly enjoyed her long walks along Duarte’s bike path and teaching aerobics at the Duarte Fitness Center. Camping was one of her favorite things to do and she has seen a majority of the United States while traveling with her husband. This past summer she was able to enjoy a two-month trip across the country to visit friends and family. As a caring, loving wife, mother, sister, and friend she valiantly finished her fight with cancer on Friday, December 10, 2010. Visitation will be on Thursday, December 16, from 6:00 - 8:00 P.M. at Douglas & Zook Chapel of Remembrance 600 E. Foothill Blvd., Monrovia.  A Memorial Service will be held at 10am, Friday, December 17 at Immaculate Conception Church, 740 S. Shamrock Ave, Monrovia.  Maureen is survived by her husband, Wayne, daughter Heather Sark and son-in-law David Sark, and nine brothers and sisters, their spouses and children.
