Family and friends were the most important thing in Maren’s life. She was well thought of by everyone because of the kind, thoughtful person that she was, always putting others before herself.
Maren was a very creative person who crafted memory and baby quilts for her family. She started sewing at the age of five and became a talented seamstress who created beautiful wedding dresses.
Maren was a perfectionist in everything that she did and was always impeccably dressed. Her organizational skills and leadership made her a wonderful role model.
She will be missed by her family and her many friends everywhere.
