September 9, 2017 marked the official dedication of the Maureen McGrory Stewart Library at the Upper Bucks Campus. It was an emotionally moving day. Please read on to learn the story of Maureen McGrory Stewart, a remarkable and much loved member of the Bucks County Community College family.
“Born in Bryn Mawr, Pa., Maureen McGrory Stewart moved to Doylestown, Pa., in 1977. She received a nursing degree from Gwynedd Mercy University, specializing in psychiatric medicine. She spent 20 years in supervisory positions at the State Hospital in Collegeville, Pa., and the Lenape Valley Foundation in Doylestown. Maureen then earned an associates degree in PC/End User Support at Bucks County Community College and subsequently worked in the Upper Bucks Library for many happy years. She took pride in working with students to solve problems, while participating with the faculty in maintaining a supportive and relaxed atmosphere.
Maureen loved Irish music and dance and supporting her great neieces and nephews in their dancing and music development. She enjoyed many activities such as skiing, horseback riding (also being a proud member of the Bucks Equestrian team), kayaking, and traveling. She is sorely missed.
The Maureen McGrory Stewart Library was dedicated by her loving family in 2017. In addition, a scholarship endowment has been established in her name to support Bucks nursing students pursuing their associates degree.”
