Maureen Rose Dourney   

Camden - Herkimer 


Maureen Rose Dourney, 76, of Camden, formerly of Herkimer, passed away Tuesday, June 25, 2024, at Siegenthaler Center. 


Maureen was born in Herkimer, New York, on December 26, 1947, the daughter of the late Walter and Marion Collins Dourney. Maureen attended the St. Frances de Sales Catholic School and Herkimer Senior High where she graduated with the class of 1965. She graduated from SUNY Cobleskill in 1967, and then attended Kent State University where she graduated in 1971. She was at one time employed as secretary for the Curriculum Coordinator at Herkimer Central Schools. Maureen made her career as a business education  teacher at Camden High School from 1972 until her retirement in 2004, giving 32 years of dedicated service to her students.


Maureen was extremely proud of her Irish heritage and was a devout Catholic who was a communicant of both St. John's Church, Camden, and St. Francis de Sales Church, Herkimer. She was an active member of Camden Teachers Association, serving as building rep, secretary, editor of the teachers’ newsletter, a delegate to NYSUT’s representative assembly, and chaired numerous teachers association committees. She was a member of NYS United Teachers Association, American Federation of Teachers, NYS Business Teachers Association, and BPW. Maureen was instrumental in spearheading the Clothing Connection which provides quality clothing at low prices to the Camden community.

Affectionately known as Mo, Aunt Mo, Momma Mo, and G-Mo, she will be remembered for her kindness and generosity to all.
