It is with great sadness we announce that Maureen Fielder, 43, of Grosse Ile, Michigan died unexpectedly on Saturday, January 15, 2022.

Born May 3, 1978 to Keith and Ann (Conroy) Fielder, Maureen lived with passion, determination, and generosity. A graduate of Grosse Ile High School, John Carroll University (B.S.), and Marygrove College (Masters in the Art of Teaching), Maureen was an honors students and track star who turned to distance running after college, completing numerous marathons including Boston.

A natural educator, Maureen’s love of numbers inspired her work as a high school math teacher where she guided hundreds of students to think analytically and truly understand the material. Her mentorship of students carried over from the classroom to the track and cross country field where she worked to instill confidence and bring out the best in each individual.

Maureen was an avid reader and puzzler, who enjoyed both crosswords and Sudoku. She loved the water; whether she was water skiing, relaxing on a boat with friends and family, or floating in the pool on a bright pink flamingo; life was better in a swim suit. Her remarkable memory was regularly on display – easily reciting entire scenes of movies, little-known stats about her beloved Detroit Tigers, and, much to the dismay of her friends and family, what really happened at most any event. Whether she was training for a marathon, hustling to make her TV’s Diner customers’ meal an enjoyable experience, or taking care of the details of a real estate customer, Maureen had an incredible work ethic, regularly demonstrating her determination and dedication.

By far, Maureen’s greatest legacy was her generosity. At school and on the track she was deeply committed to helping those who needed her support the most. At the restaurant and the real estate office she displayed professionalism, wisdom, and her sharp sense of humor. She deeply loved her family and easily shared her affection in small ways – she had a knack for picking out the perfect cards – and big – her hugs could only be described as bear-like. Those who knew her will not forget. Those who loved her will keep her close. The imprint she left on our hearts far exceeds the amount of time we were able to share together.

Maureen will be deeply missed by her partner Scott Ranspach, parents Keith and Ann Fielder, brother John Paul Fielder, sister-in-law Kelly DiNardo, nephew Oliver Fielder, and an abundance of family – both the family she was blessed to be born into and the family she chose along the way. Preceding her in death were her grandparents, Don and Pat Fielder and Tim and Janet Conroy, and cousins Michaeleen and Chrissie Conroy.

To honor Maureen’s passion, determination, and generosity, we ask, in lieu of flowers, to please contribute to the Maureen Fielder Fund (tinyurl.com/MaureenFielder) which will support high school students interested in attending a two or four year institution with a focus on mathematics/engineering and an in interest in athletics.

Maureen lived by her favorite song quote ” when you give it away, it all comes back tenfold they say…” Oak Ridge Boys

Margery E. Swint, age 96, of Buford, GA and a native of Wyandotte, MI, passed away on February 19, 2022.
Margery was a homemaker, and along with her husband Dean, raised seven children while keeping up with the many activities and challenges of a large family. While a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Atlanta, she was active in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and an original member of the Atlanta Cursillo Movement in the 1960’s. After a return to Michigan, she worked as an auxiliary volunteer at Wyandotte General Hospital in the 80’s and 90’s. She also renewed her love of drawing and art by taking classes at a local community college while expanding her talents further in the silk screening, wood etching, and ceramic disciplines. A night out playing Bingo, at one of the many social halls in town, always served as an enjoyable getaway to meet with old and new friends. In later years, on returning to Georgia after the death of her husband, she was a regular at the Buford Senior Center.
She was preceded in death by husband Dean Swint, son Daniel Swint, parents Martin T. Shelata Sr. and Claire Reinke Shelata, brothers Martin T. Shelata Jr., Gerald Shelata, sister Mary Ellen Czadzeck and son-in-law John Mangan.
