    It deeply saddened me to know that you’ve passed away . You were such a bright spirit in that old dim building on the hill . I want you to know that you will be sincerely missed . I wanted to share with you that I loved having history with you and always learning something different . Your heart is what inspired me to always be so giving and kind . It was your generous deeds that lead me to join the military , and now I’m a veteran. We used to pack care packages and wrap toys for tots and all these cool fundraisers . I asked you one time about the fundraisers and why you do it . You told me “not everyone has , these things bring warmth to their hearts . There’s nothing wrong with helping.” I remember all the positive times I shared with you as a student. I will remember you and your positivity always . You were my favorite teacher in middle school . It was an honor to be taught by your father as well may god rest your soul Mrs. Maguire -Rogers 💜

  2. To the many family and friends of Ms Maguire-Rogers please accept my sincere condolences. The pain of losing a loved one so suddenly was never God’s plan. Please know that he understands your pain and has promised to end death forever. (Isaiah 25:8) He also promises to bring back to life your dear Abby to a world free from any sickness, suffering and even death.(Acts 24:15)

    To say that we are devastated at the passing of Abby Maguire would be a massive understatement. “Miss Maguire” was a vital part of the Swampscott Middle School fabric, both in the classroom and through her involvement with school-related extracurricular activities. Our daughter, Kellie, benefited from Abby’s head-coaching position for the SMS track and field program, and again when she was assistant coach for the SHS program. Abby will be greatly missed, yet will always be remembered and loved by her family, friends, students and parents (both past and present) – and by the Swampscott community.

  4. We are so sorry for your loss. Sending our condolences to you and your family. From Alison, Adam, Brandon and Evan Roth

  5. My deepest condolences to Abby’s family and friends. You were such a wonderful person and teacher. Rest Easy, Abby

  6. The brief time in which i knew Abby was an absolute pleasure. She was such a kind and generous woman, with an unmatchable sense of humor. A true gem. I send my dearest condolences to her family and friends. Abby, you will be missed dearly. Rest In Peace.

  7. Some of the worst school years I had were made bearable by having an understanding, friendly, and enthusiastic voice in the classroom. You were that voice for many students, and the school is forever poorer for having lost that voice. Rest in Peace.

  8. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Abby so fondly as a child when she would come to my sister Karen Sherry’s house to play with her kids. I hope and pray your family can find peace with this tragic loss.

  17. Ms. Maguire taught me in 7th grade and I will always remember how kind, warm and thoughtful she was. She was an amazing teacher and person and she will be missed. Love and prayers to her family and friends.

  18. The best teachers are the ones who share the world with their students. Mrs. Rogers was the first to push me to look beyond my own world and see a global community. Her geography classes captivated me and exposed me to places and cultures I never thought to learn about. I am hardly the only one she inspired and she will be dearly missed by all of her students.

  19. Abby, you were a thoughtful and kind colleague, friend, and teacher. I loved working with you. Rest In Peace.

  20. My sincere condolences to Abby’s family and friends. I had the pleasure of meeting Abby on more than one occasion and was taken by her genuineness, kind, sweet, and compassionate demeanor. She was such a spirited,soulful young woman with so much love in her heart. Heaven surely gained a beautiful angel and I am sure she has earned her wings. She will be truly missed by all that loved her and by the lives she has touched during her journey on earth. My deepest sympathies to all.

  23. Ms. Rogers was one of the most memorable teachers I have ever had. It was that 7th grade year when she taught me the importance of reaching out to those who are not as fortunate. It was because of her I had a pen pal from South Africa and was involved in groups such as TLC where she encouraged me to think about the bigger picture. I will miss you very much Ms. Rogers! Me and my family’s thoughts are with your family.

  24. A kind and selfless woman who taught my 7th grade social studies class, one that I won’t forget when I got sick on my third day of school and you cared for me. I am heartbroken and know that the lessons you have taught countless Swampscott students will remain with us forever. Rest in peace ❤️

  25. Ms Rogers was my 7th grade teacher, and was one of my favorites. She was always very nice to me and everyone else. Whenever I saw her, she was always smiling and had something nice to say. I hope you have found peace. You will be dearly missed. Sending my thoughts to her family and loved ones

  26. Annette Merlino Rogers

    Thank you Mrs Rogers for being the wonderful teacher that you were to Kyle and Cameron. I loved that you never prejudged any of your students . It was much appreciated.

  27. She was truly an amazing teacher that Swampscott had. I will always remember her willingness to help me because I struggled in geography. Or when TLC season came. Or when someone just needed a laugh. Rest In Peace Mrs Rogers. You will be missed deeply and by many. 👼🏼💔

  28. My twin boys had the pleasure of being taught by Ms.Rogers. One of the nicest teachers in Swampscott.
    Always enjoyed talking with her.
    Rest in Peace. Prayers to your two beautiful girls.

  29. It was a pleasure to have Abby Rogers as my seventh grade history teacher. Many laughs and memories were shared in the classroom. She was driven by genuine passion and curiosity about the worlds past, present, and future. One lesson she taught me was to always be honest about my failures and weaknesses. It influenced my eagerness to succeed at my own pace. I know she would be proud of what her students have and will accomplish. Rest in Peace.

  30. I worked with Abby many years ago at the old Lechmere in Woburn. One of the sweetest people with the biggest smile at all times. Just a wonderful person in every way. My thoughts and prayers to her family and friends

    The one thing I will remember about Abby from our days at Woburn High is that she was one of the nicest people ever. She always had a smile on her face. I’m so sorry to hear that she is gone. Sending love and strength to all of her loved ones.

  39. Abby was my seventh grade history teacher. She was enthusiastic about her teaching and the dedication she had for our sister school in South Africa had a lasting effect on me as a student. Her presence will be greatly missed in the community. We lost a beautiful soul. My prayers are with her family and friends during this difficult time.

  40. Daniel Vincent Kelley

    Abby was one of the most kind people I’ve ever met. Never once did I see her that she wasn’t perfectly angelic. Some will say, I hope you find peace. I watched her live peace. You are sorely missed Abby.
    Love your adoring friend forever,
    Danny Kelley

  41. Donna Ardolino Pasciuto

    Abby, was kind, funny, and giving person. Her absence will be felt in my life and in her school community. She always had a smile and a kind word to say even in her most difficult times. She was loved by her students and colleagues. We love you Abby, I hope you have found peace. ❤️❤️❤️

  42. Abby was a first year teacher when I was in seventh grade. Mr Rogers had just started teaching at sms half way through the year and I recall rumors of their love as it blossomed. I remember Abby as someone who truly cared about her students and as someone who radiated light and love. She was one of my sweetest teachers and I will always remember her. My thoughts are with her beautiful daughters and the rest of her family 💜
