February 19, 1922 ~ July 27, 2019

Born in: Fort Wayne, IN
Resided in: Denver , CO

On July 27, Patsy Fee O’Rourke Monaghan snuck off to a loud, joyful reunion of family and friends in eternity.
She was greeted there by Jesus, her Savior; Stephen John Monaghan, her husband, and Megan Monaghan Durkin (Dennis), her daughter; Dr &Mrs Donald H. O’Rourke, her mother and father; Donald and Sheila O’Rourke, her brother and sister; and a whole happy mess of pals who are delighted to be with her again.
Thomas P. O’Rourke, who survives her,  greatly misses his big sister but is nowhere near ready to join her party.
Her surviving children, Tim (Isabel), Rory (Ellen), Mary (the late Larry Peterson), Kitty (Larry Kucharik), and Elisabeth are all deeply sad for her passing, but grateful beyond words for the great gift of being her kids.
Her seven grandchildren and thirty-one great grandchildren will remember her as a proud, laughing, twinkly-eyed smiler who loved and treasured each of them.
And if you knew Patsy, she probably loved and treasured you, too.
A celebration of Patsy’s life will be held on Thursday,  September 12 at 10:00 a.m. at Good Shepard Catholic Church, 2626 E 7th Ave Pkwy, Denver, CO 80206
A reception will follow- location to be announced.
In lieu of flowers, be nice to each other. And consider a donation to the Denver Hospice, 501 S. Cherry Street, Suite 700, Denver, CO 80246.


Memories Timeline


  1. Absolutely the cream of the crop when it comes to ladies. So wise in her advice and so loving even in her voice.
    The family and friends in heaven are rejoicing in celebrating her arrival. Certainly our loss and her gain. Our hearts ache for her dear family. What a gift to the world and now heaven.

  2. Kathy McMahon Urig Denver, CO \\ Hi Kitty it”s been too many years! But I still have wonderful memories of your family and your Mom and Dad. I think every one of the McMahon’s went to Monaghan Optical for many years.
    I still won’t see an Optometrist, always has to be an Ophthalmologist!!! Many memories of being at your house and playing Barbies!!! Basement room w the bookcase filled w National Geographic magazines, your Mom fixing tuna sandwiches on black rye bread ( my favorite!!) Sorry to hear both Patsy and John are gone now. My Dad, Tom, passed away in 1993 and Mom, Mimi in 2016, she was 97!!! Hope to see you at the service. My condolences and best wishes for the rest of your family…
