Maureen Baggs-McGunigle Obituary

BAGGS-McGUNIGLE, Maureen F. (O'Keefe)  In Andover, formerly of East Boston and Mesa, AZ, February 8, 2024. Beloved wife of the late John F. McGunigle and the late Walter H. Baggs.

Loving mother of Audrey Marinelli and her husband John, Timothy Baggs and his wife Hollie, Kori A. Moses and her husband Brock. Grandmother of Paige, Ava and Liv Marinelli, Haley, Torin and William Baggs, Kayla and Brennan Moses.  Aunt of Robert and the late John Baggs.

Maureen worked for many years as the executive secretary to Jack Cradock MD, head of the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center.  Maureen lived a full and vibrant life, always seeking out new experiences and loved spending time with her friends and loved ones.  In her 88 years, she remained active and engaged; never content to sit still for long.  Sledding at the age of 80 and riding on the back of her grandchildren’s four-wheeler at 85 are examples of her desire to live her best life.  She cherished her daily meetups with friends at McDonald’s for morning coffee (friendships she made while living in Mesa, Arizona and, most recently, Andover).   Maureen loved returning to East Boston to get her hair done and visit with friends or relatives. She loved reading romance novels and would often finish a good book in a week.  She enjoyed knitting and crocheting; creating beautiful blankets, sweaters, and scarfs that she gifted to her family and friends. She was tech savvy and loved posting pictures and staying connected with her Facebook friends.  Maureen always held onto her passion for driving and took many cross-country road trips (most recently at the age of 84 driving solo from Arizona to Massachusetts in her 2004 VW Jetta); creating wonderful memories.  She was an avid sports fan, who loved routing for her beloved Bruins, Red Sox and New England Patriots and found joy and camaraderie in the spirit of the game (she was a true “80 for Brady” fan).  Maureen lived life her way. She will be lovingly remembered and forever missed by all her family and friends.
