Mary Elizabeth “Mary Beth” Ahern, age 58, passed away on November 15, 2022, at Porter Hospice in Centennial, CO. Mary Beth was born on December 29, 1963, in Chicago, IL.

After settling down in Denver, Mary Beth worked for almost 25 years at Rocky Mountain Human Services—formerly Denver Options—serving individuals with developmental disabilities. Mary Beth was an avid reader, a talented cook, and a gifted storyteller. She was a world traveler, eagerly sought out new adventures, and adored her beloved dog, Maggie.

Her siblings John J Ahern, Jr. and Jeanette Ahern predeceased her.
