Maree Anne O’Brien

23-07-1954 to 20-04-2023

Daughter of the loving parents Mervin and Mary Corcoran, Maree was born and raised along side her two Brothers Trevor and Brian in the small country town of Crookwell.

Maree had a love for the family farm and also the game of Grass hockey where she competed at a representative level.

Maree attended school at the Marian collage in Goulburn.

In her later teenage years Maree would meet Michael O’Brien, the two would marry and leave the country to build and new life and family in the coastal town of Batemans Bay.

For years the Duo would run the iconic Bayview Hotel with great success, however for Maree this was also her proudest time raising their son Adam and daughter Lisa.

Maree was selfless and always devoted her time to her two children with many of their sporting ventures and family adventures.

It was through Maree’s support that Adam today gained his long term goal of becoming a NRL head coach.

Maree was so proud of the mother Lisa would become to her to beautiful grandchildren, Lilly and Kai who she adored.

After Maree’s time at the Bayview hotel she would shift to work alongside her very close friends in an administrative role at Camerons timber and hardware and this would see out most of her working career.

Maree was a loving mother to Adam and Lisa, mother in-law to both Sharyn and Ben.

Caring and loving Grandmother to Lilly and Kai.

Caring partner to David

Best friend to Michele and friend to many.

There was nothing not to like about Maree and her caring personality. Maree will be sadly missed by many.

The family and the closest friends of Maree would like to invite all that may have had their lives touched by Maree to join us and celebrate her life.

St Bernards Church, Batehaven on 1st May 2023 commencing at 1.00pm.

    Vale Possum may you rest in peace. Friendship as a teenager lingers on as does the honour of being a part of you wedding to Mick as well as welcoming the births of Lisa & Adam. You are up there in the clouds somewhere Possum & suffer pain no more.
