    BARRE — F. Maureen Scanlon, 69, of Barre, died July 29, 2013, following a long and courageous battle with cancer.

    Maureen was born in Holyoke, Mass., the daughter of Richard M. and Laurentia (Collins) Scanlon.

    She attended schools in Holyoke and later in Lake Peekskill, Mahopac, Lake Carmel and Cross River, N.Y., and business school in Wilmington, Del. She lived and worked in New York City and Westchester County, N.Y., before becoming a partner in a restaurant in Homer, N.Y.

    In 2000, she moved to Graniteville, Vt., and initially worked as a licensed nursing assistant from Berlin Health and Rehab and Woodridge Nursing Home. As she became increasingly dedicated to helping people to remain in their own homes, she accepted private duty assignments and became associated with Armistead and Central Vermont Home Health and Hospice.

    Maureen is survived by her son, Michael, his wife, Holly, and their four children, of Foxcroft, Maine; her sister Kathi Smith and brothers-in-law Dick Smith, of Barre, and Micheal Sterlacci, of Ossining, N.Y.; as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her sister Laurie Sterlacci, of Ossining, N.Y., in October 2012.
