Kathleen J. (Munroe) Maurer Joyce Newburyport - Kathleen “Joyce” (Munroe) Maurer, age 86, of Newburyport, passed quietly Monday evening, November 5, 2018, at Brigham Health Center in Newburyport. She was the beloved wife of Donald P. Maurer.
Born in Boston, March 6, 1932, Kathleen was one of four children of the late Norman and Rachel (McLeod) Munroe.
For many years “Joyce”, as she was known by many, had worked in housekeeping at Brigham Manor Nursing Home, now known as the Brigham Health Center.
She was the proud mother of two sons and one daughter, and would not have wanted to trade her role as a mother, caretaker, confidante and advocate for her children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren. She loved them with all her heart and felt truly blessed to be part of their lives.
In addition to her husband Donald, she is survived by her sons, Donald Maurer and wife Sheila of Amesbury and Gary Driscoll of Hull; her daughter, Diane Wigmore and husband Paul of Amesbury; her eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, along with several generations of nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. She was predeceased by her brother and two sisters, Norman Munroe, June Pinella and Ethel Felton.
Funeral Services will be held Monday, November 12, 2018 at 11 a.m. at the Highland Chapel of Paul C. Rogers Family Funeral Home, 2 Hillside Avenue, Amesbury followed by burial in Hillside Cemetery, Seabrook, NH. By request of the family, there will be no visiting hours.
