Maureen A. McCaffrey

July 7, 1938 ~ January 6, 2019 (age 80)


Lunenburg - Maureen "Mo" McCaffrey was given the gift of life and now she has given it back.  Maureen was born on July 7, 1938 in Leominster, MA to the late Edwin and Bernice McCaffrey.  She graduated from St. Bernard's High School and Anna Maria College, attaining the highest of honors at both schools.  Upon graduation, Maureen embarked on what would become a 37 year career in education.  Her passion truly was teaching children and watching them grow and learn.   To all of her former students, our family would like to thank you for bringing so much joy into her life.  Mo loved to read, play games, take long walks, do puzzles and dote on her beloved pets, Buttons and Bojangles.

Mo is survived by her brothers, Edwin McCaffrey and Joseph McCaffrey and her sister, Brenda Gilhooly.  She was predeceased by her brother Bernard McCaffrey.  She will be greatly missed by her niece Colleen LeClair, with whom she lived for over twenty years.  She also leaves nieces, Kelly McCaffrey, Shannon Johnson and Megan Beeso, as well as nieces and nephews from afar.

Our family would like to extend our extreme gratitude to her wonderful caregivers at River Terrace Health Care Center in Lancaster.  As we all know, Mo was humble and private so we are honoring her wishes to keep her services private.  Should you chose, memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, 8180 Greensboro Drive, Suite 400, McLean, VA 22102.  To celebrate her, please take a moment to remember a fond memory you shared and "don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened" (Dr. Seuss)
