October 20, 1961 – June 6, 2019
Maureen Marie Devereaux, 57, of Falmouth, MA passed away suddenly at home on Thursday, June 6, 2019. She was born in Boston, MA to her loving parents Maureen (Davis) Devereaux and the late Francis Devereaux.
Moe grew up in South Weymouth where she attended school, graduating in 1979. She spent her life pursuing her desire to help others. She worked as a paramedic in Braintree, Boston, and Weymouth for many years. Due to the nature of her job, Moe ended her career in the hopes of mending the physical and mental toll the job had taken on her. Along her journey she hit setbacks and strived to fight through them. The AA/NA groups of Cape Cod were a constant staple in her life, as were the people she met along the way. She was happiest helping others, counseling and mentoring anyone who needed her. This drove her to go back to school where she obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work, her proudest achievement.
Sadly, the struggle to mend herself was too great.
Moe will be forever remembered as a loving sister, aunt, and true friend. She will be greatly missed by her family, Ann Devereaux of Hyannis; Frank and Mary Devereaux of Middleboro; Robert Devereaux and Lauralee of South Weymouth; Michael Devereaux of Falmouth; Charlene and Shawn Kenney of Bourne, as well as her nieces Megan, Colleen, Caitlin, Mia, Emily and nephew Frank Jr.
A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday June 15th 10AM, at St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Parish, 841 Shore Rd. Pocasset, MA. Visiting hours will be held on Friday June 14th from 4-8pm at the Nickerson-Bourne Funeral Home, 40 MacArthur Blvd. Bourne, MA. Burial will be private.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Falmouth Food Pantry at 611 Gifford St. Falmouth, MA.

Dear Devereaux family,
My deepest condolences to all
of Maureen’s family and friends. I remember Maureen so well and so fondly for her genuine kindness, dedication to her patients, unusually gentle soul and great sense of humor. She was the best of us at South Shore Paramedics and I am most grateful to have known her and worked with her all those years ago. She was a truly dedicated, compassionate and professional lifesaver. Rest In Peace Maureen.

I was fortunate to call Moe my friend when we were all young, hanging out together on Thicket Street and going to high school together. She always had a smile on her face and her laugh was just unforgettable. I’m so very sorry to hear of her passing and send love and strength to all of her family.

To all of Maureen’s loved ones,
My deepest sympathies for your loss. My memories of Moe go back to the earliest days of our lives, neighborhood fun, ice skating on the Rez, riding bikes around Elmer Rd, waiting at the bus stop, and in later years at SSH.
Maureen was friendly, kind and always had a smile when she greeted you.
A great loss. May you find strength and support in each other
