Maieve Elizabeth Gallup was born on August 15, 1972, in Oakland, California to Dona Lee Gallup (Roby) and Wayne Gallup alongside her twin sister, Caitlin (Gallup) Julian. She attended Alliance High School, Billings West Senior High and Coon Rapids Senior High School where she graduated with the Class of 1990.

She attained her degree from Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, California. Maieve was an insatiable learner with a passion for learning that went well beyond the classrooms of numerous prestigious institutions including Oxford, the University of California, Berkeley, and Université de Paris.

All who knew Maieve can attest that her love of learning was matched equally by her zeal for business and her entrepreneurial nature. Maieve started her career as the youngest licensed stock broker in the state of California. Her skills eventually drew her East to New York where she consulted in areas of marketing and fundraising. She eventually moved to Dallas/Fort Worth to be with family. She founded ArtDharma, Inc. which was focused on furthering children’s interest in the arts, something for which she had a great passion.

On January 11, 2002 Maieve’s life changed forever when her son, Aeden was born. Although her nature as a business woman never faltered, her son would forever be her primary focus. She remained in Fort Worth where she began climbing the ladder to becoming the preeminent mortgage originator in the DFW area. Maieve’s skill at her job stemmed not from her mathematical skills, her unrelenting drive, or her extraordinary business sense – she became the best because she truly cared about people. Maieve strived to help anyone who came to her to achieve the dream of home ownership, often taking on clients no one else would touch. She had a heart for veterans; the DFW metro is dotted with homes bearing American flags, placed there by soldiers who were able to purchase their homes through the tireless work that Maieve did on their behalf. Many who worked with her called her more than simply a colleague; rather she was the truest of friends, whose tireless work ethic seemed to be able to accomplish the impossible while always offering a smile and a laugh.

Maieve attended Fellowship of The Parks Church in Keller, Texas for several years and was the first Life Group Leader to the single parent ministry.

She is survived by her one and only son, Aeden Thomas Gallup-King of Carrollton; her mother Dona Lee Roby and Step-Dad, Ron of Haltom City; her father Wayne Gallup and wife Gretchen of Wilton California; her brother Jonathan Gallup and wife Angela of North Richland Hills; her sister Caitlin Julian and husband Jack of Peoria, Arizona; her nieces and nephews Darien Gallup, Calli Hotelling, Logan Slater, Patrick Johnson, Stephen Johnson, Eric Paulus and Kennedy Julian.

She was preceded in death by her sister Kimberly Ann Roby.
