Goen, Maureen Kathryne "Mo"
Maureen Kathryne "Mo" Goen, age 68, of Columbus, passed away on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, at Waunakee Manor. She was born on July 2, 1952, in Dodgeville, Wis., the daughter of Joseph and Lucille (Weier) Burns.
Mo graduated from Hollandale High School in 1970. She worked as a dietary manager for many years at Columbus Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Oak Park Place in Middleton.
Mo was full of life and loved a good story. She enjoyed listening to music, traveling to Jamaica, having picnics and fishing. Most of all, Mo's pride and joy were her loving family, especially her grandchildren. She will be remembered as a loyal and honest friend who always told it like it was. Her spunky, dare-devil personality brought happiness to everyone around her. She left her family and friends with a wealth of memories that will be cherished forever.
Mo is survived by her sons, Cody (Andrea) Goen and Joshua Goen; grandchildren, Joshua, Thea, Hailey and Layla Goen; siblings, Mike (Sharon) Burns, Larry Burns, Rose (Mike) Ohlert, Becky (Larry) Ehrhorn and Georgine Miller; sisters-in-law, Doris Kuehn, JoEllen Burns and Judy Burns; Joan Flint and many nieces, nephews and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; stepfather, Walter Broughton; siblings, Virginia (Warren) Benson, Jocile (Bob) Pirkel, Ron Burns, John Burns, Ken (Mary) Burns and Pat Burns; and sister-in-law, Caroline Burns.
