Eula Mae Maloney
Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend
Eula Mae Maloney, a 40-year resident of Claremont, died on March 1, 2013. She was 91.
Mrs. Maloney was born on April 6, 1921 in Spadra, California to Oscar and Zeda Glidewell. She attended Pomona High School and Pomona Junior College.
In 1943, she married William Maloney, then a captain in the United States Air Force. Together, they had an amazing life, traveling the world and raising 4 daughters.
When Mr. Maloney retired in 1970, Mrs. Maloney began a 17-year career with the Los Angeles County Fair, ultimately retiring as operations manager. She continued working with the Fair Association as a consultant as well as the director of communications for the Orange Show.
Mrs. Maloney was committed to community service and served on many local boards, including United Way, Camp Fire Girls, the Cable Airport Association, Women’s International Bowling Congress, Retired Officers Association Auxiliary, Red Hill Country Club, Friends of the Fair and the Military Officers Association of America.
She remained very active throughout her life, whether traveling to visit her children, grandchildren and great-grand children all across the country for special events or holidays or out on the town with her many friends attending lunches, dinners, parties or entertainment events. She was always on the go and ready for a new adventure, according to family.
“It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and dear friend. We will all treasure the countless memories gathered over those many years,” Mrs. Maloney’s family shared.
Mrs. Maloney was preceded in death by her sister Alma Glidewell, and her husband of 64 years, William R. Maloney. She is survived by her daughter Elizabeth; by her daughters and sons-in-law, Cathleen and Marcel, Karen and Jim, and Debi and Dean; and by 7 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
A Memorial Mass will be held at 10 a.m. on April 6, 2013 at Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Claremont. Mrs. Maloney will be laid to rest in a family ceremony beside Mr. Maloney in Riverside National Cemetery.
