Maureen A. (Scalley) Smith – passed away peacefully at Beth Israel Hospital in Plymouth, Friday evening May 27th at seventy-three years of age.

Born in Woburn on July 22, 1949, she was one of five children born to the late Walter and Clara (Delfino-Scalley) Gatley.  Maureen was raised and educated in Woburn, having graduated from Woburn High School along with the Class of 1967.

Maureen entered the world of banking after a short time in retail where she remained until her retirement in 2014.  For many of those years she was a very familiar face at the Winchester Savings Bank.

 Maureen was dedicated to her two sons and was continually on the go keeping up with them bringing them to baseball, hockey etc. As years went by Maureen was blessed with two granddaughters, whom she was so devoted too. Time with them was always important and they were always made to feel very loved and special.

Maureen had moved to Carver almost six years ago, but still remained very close to her family here in the Woburn area.  After all, it was just a jaunt away!

Maureen was a faith filled woman and became very active in her church there in Carver.  From Bible studies, weekly services, and helping out in any way possible there, Maureen had established a very nice relationship with many of the other parishioners.

A very kind, social, and loving mother, sister, grandmother and friend, Maureen was there for them all.  Every holiday birthday and/or celebration, family would all gather at her home. A wonderful legacy of a truly extraordinary person.

    I was thankful to have agreed face to face fellowship with a sister in the Lord that I had not had opportunity at church. Upon my arrival on the unit, the nurse said, you are the Minister she was expecting. I said, not in the usual sence of minister. However I do minister in song. I thanked her for allowing my visit, and my granddaughter was so happy. She said her two granddaughters were coming later also. she expressed she was settled in peace and acceptance, but kept apologizing for her soft speech. She held my hand the entire time and I sang to her until she started getting sleepy, I said I am going to leave so you can be rested for your granddaughters visit.We prayed,she asked me to cover her with the blanket. Such a gentle spirit!
    My deepest sympathy to all.

  6. I have had the honor to be your friend at Evangelical Zion Church in West Wareham. I will never forget the memories we have shared. I love your heart after God. My most fondest memory and I will never forget was last year at “Soulfest 2021.” The laughter was so infectious, We laughed so hard we couldn’t breathe. Your words of wisdom and the joy of spending time with you will always stay with me forever. I know you wanted so bad to make Soulfest 2022 this year but you are in a better place. You are in the presence of your Lord and Savior and that my friend is the best place to be. We will meet again I can promise you. Thank you for the time spent here on earth and the love to all those around you. I Love You my friend!!
