OBITUARY:

Therese O. Maguire, a lifelong resident of Burlington, passed away at Winchester Hospital, surrounded by her family, on Friday evening, August 18th, following an illness of several months. The beloved wife of Chester H. “Chet” Maguire, Sr. for nearly forty-eight years, she was sixty-eight.

Born in Cambridge, daughter of the late Clarence W. and Mary E. (Dube) Ingalls, she was raised in Burlington and resided there throughout her life. Therese attended St. Charles School in Woburn and was a 1955 graduate of St. Charles High School.

For the past ten years she had worked for her son Chet’s photo shop, Smile Professional Color Lab of Burlington. She enjoyed meeting the customers as she made deliveries and served as an unofficial “goodwill ambassador” for the business.

Her hobbies included sewing, crocheting, and baking, as well as aerobics classes at the Burlington Recreation Department. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her grandchildren. She was an important part of their lives and could always be counted on to lend a helping hand. She never missed an activity or sporting event in which they were involved.

Preceding her in death were five brothers, C. George, Francis, James, Edward, and Bernard Ingalls.

Surviving along with her husband Chet are five children: Chester H. “Chet”, Jr. and his wife Lauren, Michael J. and his wife Kim, Daniel W., and Kathleen V. Turri and her husband Dennis, all of Burlington, and Kevin C. and his wife Pat of Woburn.

She was the dear sister of Catherine Carey of Bedford, NH, John F. Ingalls of Danvers, Marie Singer of Millbury, and Dr. Robin Ingalls of Somerville, and cherished grandmother of Jillian, Robyn, Jamie and Ian Maguire, Joseph, Sean and Tim Maguire, and Jeffrey and Leah Turri.

She also leaves her stepmother, Doris Ingalls of Millbury, her aunt and godmother, Olive Chase of Sutton, and her dear friends, Carol and Joe Daniels of N. Reading.

The funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, on Wednesday, August 23rd at 9 a.m., followed by a funeral mass in St. Margaret’s Church, 111 Winn Street, Burlington, at 10. Interment will follow in Pine Haven Cemetery, Burlington.
