SWANTON: Maureen Marie Chagnon, age 66, passed away peacefully on November 19, 2022, at the home of her sister, Emma.
She was born in Montreal, on April 30, 1956, to Louis and Shirley (Bates) Demar. Maureen married David Chagnon, on March 05, 1978.
Shortly after becoming a mother, Marie and David moved to Claremont, NH where they became the custodians at the Claremont Triple Cinema until the time it closed. Marie and David partnered in their business, D&M Janitorial. After Dave and Marie moved to Milton, she went back to work as a Custodian at the Milton Elementary School. Marie’s primary role, and favorite role in life, was a mother and grandmother which she was most proud of. Marie will be remembered for her love of reading, crocheting, and watching classic movies. What she will be most remembered for is giving away her love and the many crochet items she made.
