Maureen Haggerty Warmuth, Arts ’79

Maureen Haggerty WarmuthMaureen retired from Wisconsin Gas—We Energies after 25 years of service. Currently vice president and board member of Haggerty Enterprises, Maureen, a second-generation Marquette graduate whose daughter now attends the university, bleeds Blue & Gold. “I knew what opportunities Marquette had given to a poor boy from Harvey, North Dakota—my dad,” she says. “He attributed his success to Marquette, and I’m the beneficiary of it.”

In addition to her work with AMUW, Maureen serves on the board of Marquette’s Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences Alumni Association. She is highly regarded as a superb ambassador for Marquette. Generous in spirit, known for her kind words, warm laugh and big hugs, she personifies the values and traditions of a Jesuit education.

A fervent volunteer, Maureen has been active in several causes, including Harbor House; Bridging the Gap; Tosa Food Pantry; Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart Alumni Association; ABCD (After Breast Cancer Detection); St. Pius X Parish Council; Divine Savior Holy Angels President’s Cabinet; and the Historic Heights Neighborhood Association. Maureen has also built houses with Jimmy Carter for Habitat for Humanity.

For years, Maureen carried in her wallet a clipping of a Reader’s Digest story about an elderly woman who was a prolific volunteer. When asked why she did this, the woman responded, “I want someone to miss me when I am gone.” Maureen believes that’s what people want most: to know they mattered.
