Maureen Ann Zenoski

Belmont, NY - Maureen Ann Zenoski, 75, of 2 Middaugh Street, passed away on July 6, 2015, surrounded by family at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville. She was born on January 26, 1940, in Cuba, the daughter of the late Victor, and Teresa (Walsh) Monroe and Hilda (Frantz) Monroe who raised Maureen after her birth mother, Teresa, passed away. On May 20, 1961 she married the love of her life, Donald Zenoski, who predeceased her on September 20, 2004 after 43 years of marriage.

Maureen was a stay at home mom until her children were all in school. She was later employed at Suburban Propane, in Belmont, for 13 years and Nicholson Pharmacy, in Belmont, for 13 years, until her retirement in 1997. She and Don spent many years after retirement wintering in Myrtle Beach. There they formed many wonderful memories, made many new friends and always loved to have family and friends visit. Maureen enjoyed her beautiful flowers, a bright sunny morning, a winter snow storm, the smell of spring and the glorious God-given colors of fall. She was a communicant and served as a Eucharistic Minister at the Holy Family Parish (formerly St. Mary's) in Belmont. She belonged to the Altar Society and was a member of the Jones Memorial Hospital Lilac Twig. She and Don took many trips to visit their children and families in Colorado, Washington State, Ohio and North Carolina. She never missed an event for her children or grandchildren. There never was a better baseball, basketball, volleyball or soccer fan. She enjoyed cooking, making country crafts with Don and loved family gatherings, especially at the holidays.
