Mary J. Moreau Obituary
Mary J. (Dee) Moreau, a woman who embodied a profound love for family and faith, passed away peacefully at home in Maynard on Saturday, October 5, 2019. She was 90. During the last weeks of her life, she had been surrounded by the embrace and comfort of her children, grandchildren, and friends. She was the devoted wife of the late Leon J.
