Maureen (Pritchard) Marolt

Maureen (Pritchard) Marolt, age 63, of St. Louis Park, MN was called to the Lord on this day, August 28, 2022, after an on-and-off battle with cancer starting in June of 2017.  Maureen was born in Britt, Iowa on November 15, 1958 (’58 classic, as she would say!) to William and Vivian Pritchard.  She is survived by her husband of 30 years, Tom Marolt, her father, mother and six siblings, Laura Wermerskirchen, Renee (Jim) Diemer, John (Kathy) Pritchard, Sheila (Jerry) Finch, Joe (Pam) Pritchard and Vivian.

Maureen lived a full life – 30 years of that with her husband Tom.  They were involved in just about everything – their condominium board, volunteer events at ARC of Minneapolis, Holy Family and the Basilica and anything to do with animals.  Maureen was a 23 year employee of PetSmart and a constant companion to a wide variety of pets.  You cannot think of Maureen without thinking of Mr. Orange, Checkers, Oreo, and others... and of course, Marco, the cat of 900 lives!

Maureen graduated from Britt High School, Britt, Iowa, in 1977 and LOVED going to her class reunions!  After high school she was fortunate to be enrolled in Opportunity Workshop (where she met Tom) and became involved in the world of special needs through ARC of Minneapolis.  She continued to defy all odds and went on to live on her own.

Maureen lived for events – she loved her trip to Hawaii and was convinced she was headed back there after she ‘beat cancer’.  She would let us know months ahead about the need for transportation to the Pritchard Christmas, her beloved class reunions and of course, Hobo Days in Britt where she could be found milling around the ‘hobo jungle’ reciting her poems with some of the other hobos.

There will be a visitation at the Gearty-Delmore Funeral Chapels in St. Louis Park so her Minneapolis friends can say good-bye from 1:00 to 3:00 on Friday, September 2nd.   Friends and relatives can greet the family on Saturday morning at 9:30 at St. Patrick's Church, Britt, IA.  A funeral Mass will be at 10:30, followed by a burial at St. Patrick's Cemetery, followed by a luncheon at the hall of St. Patrick's.

The family has asked that you not have flowers delivered to either the funeral chapel or the church and that instead you make donations in Maureen’s name to the organization that provide meals for Tom and Mo throughout her cancer treatments - Open Arms of Minnesota, 2500 Bloomington Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55404.
