on behalf of Cory Kilpatrick
We would like to extend our most sincere and heartfelt thanks for the messages of love and support this campaign has received to date. They have brought some semblance of comfort to our family during an impossibly difficult time. We are especially grateful for the funds being raised for Cory and Maran’s boys: Brycen, Benton, and Braedan. Our hearts ache knowing that Maran’s sons will grow up without their incredible Mom.

As many of you know, shortly after bringing Braedan into this world, Maran suffered a catastrophic bleed in her brain from a suspected AVM. Despite her medical team’s best efforts and timely care, we eventually learned that her injury was so significant that there was no chance of recovery. Maran’s wish was to have her organs donated, should a terrible situation like this ever come to be. We have honoured this wish, and know that in passing, Maran has continued to do what she did best – take care of others.

There is still much work to be done to support her husband and three sons, including a newborn baby. Your contributions to this campaign have helped us to feel that Maran’s beautiful young family will be well cared-for, despite her untimely death.

Maran was, simply put, a wonderful person. This page is a testament to the many lives she has touched in both her work and personal life.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your support.

With love and gratitude,
The Lougheeds

Obituary of Maranatha Lougheed

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of Maranatha Eileen Lougheed on July 20th, 2018 at just 39 years of age. Maran suffered a catastrophic intracranial hemorrhage two days after delivering her third son and, unfortunately, deteriorated shortly thereafter. She passed peacefully, surrounded by her family, who adored her. Maran is survived by her loving husband, Cory Kilpatrick, and her three beautiful boys, Brycen (age 4), Benton (age 2), and newborn baby Braedan. She also leaves behind a large immediate family, including her parents, Eileen and Brandon Lougheed, and siblings, Daryl (Natalie), Ronan (April), Charetina (David), Taylor (Vanessa), and Justan; as well as her mother- and father-in-law, Rick and Karen Kilpatrick; and her nieces and nephews, Maeve, Bramwell, Harrison, Sullivan, and Willa.

Maran, also known affectionately as "Marn," "Mare," or simply "M," was an incredible woman, filled with such life and laughter. She was born on May 23, 1979 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and immediately began leaving her indelible mark on the lives of everyone she encountered. Always ready with a quick smile or a witty joke, she was loved by all those who were fortunate enough to know her. An amazing athlete and especially talented swimmer, her career took her from Markham Aquatic Swim Club to Seton Hall University in New Jersey on a swim scholarship, where she made lifelong friends in the pool. She subsequently completed her medical training through Saint George's University in Grenada and her medical residency at Monmouth Medical Center in New Jersey. Her career began in Rhode Island, where she met her husband, Cory, and they started their life together in Big Flats, New York.

Maran expertly cared for thousands of patients, and was well-respected and admired by her many colleagues as an outstanding physician and Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Guthrie Corning Hospital. She dedicated her life to bringing babies into the world, saving the lives of young mothers, and offering comfort and healthcare support to women of all ages. She did this not only through medical intervention, but also by demonstrating exemplary compassion and a willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty to help those in need.

Maran's commitment to her work in women's health was second only to her dedication to her family. She worked tirelessly to create a happy home, and provided enriching experiences, along with a loving, magical childhood for her children. Maran had big dreams for her little boys, and their well-being was of the utmost importance to her. Although she was not able to communicate it, her family knows that her dying wish would have been for her children to be loved and cared for, and that they each be given the opportunity to become the best versions of themselves - as she strove to do in her own life.

Even on her final day, Maran continued to give. As per her wishes, her organs were donated to those in dire need, allowing her to save many lives despite losing her own.

Maran was, simply put, an incredible person. Her passing has left a void that will never be filled.

The Kilpatrick and Lougheed families would like to thank the exceptional medical teams at the Guthrie Corning Hospital and Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital who provided expert and compassionate care to Maran during her last days on this earth. A special thank you to her ICU team, especially her nurses, Kurtis and Kara, for their empathetic and expert care during our family's time of grief. We would also like to thank her many colleagues, friends, and patients, who rallied to support the Kilpatrick family with their heartfelt comments, generous donations, and gifts of food.

The Lougheed and Kilpatrick families will be hosting a visitation on Saturday, July 28th at McInerny Funeral Home, 502 W. Water Street, Elmira, New York from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. A Celebration of Maran's life will be hosted, by her families, on Sunday, July 29th at the Corning Radisson Hotel, 125 Denison Parkway E., Corning, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. All are invited to join in the sharing of stories and memories of Maran. In lieu of flowers, the family has kindly requested that donations be made to support Maran and Cory's sons via the following campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/lougheed, or alternatively at any Chemung Canal Trust Company under Kilpatrick-Lougheed Children's Fund.

We loved you every day, Maran, and now we will miss you the same way.
