Maureen Anne "Moe" Dwyer

September 6, 2023


Maureen Anne “Moe” Dwyer passed away peacefully on September 6, 2023 with her daughter by her side. Moe was born on February 26, 1948, in Newton, MA, the oldest child of James E. Dwyer and Catherine (Lawson) Dwyer. For the past 30 years she resided in her beloved Rocky Nook, Kingston, MA. Moe is predeceased by her parents and her brother Jimmy Dwyer. She is lovingly survived by her daughter Aubrey Proctor, son-in-law Matt Ackermann, and grandchildren Finn and Mae Ackermann. She is also survived by her best friend and sister, Marty Jaques, brother-in-law Kenny Jaques, nieces Claire Jaques Bogan and Nicole Cardarelli, their husbands, and six grandnephews and nieces.

Moe was endlessly curious about the world. She enjoyed exploring near and far, especially with her sister and friends, with her most recent trip taking her down the entire east coast from Massachusetts to Florida and back. Every car ride Moe took was an opportunity for her to take the long way, explore unknown backroads, and see the “sights.”

Moe loved flea markets, yard sales, antique shops and any place she could get a good deal on an interesting item. She was an avid reader, especially true crime and history books, but also had a soft spot for very bad Netflix movies. A great animal lover, Moe took in any stray that crossed her path and also fed the neighborhood raccoons and opossums on her porch, much to her neighbors’ dismay. At one lively time, Moe had five cats, a dog, a ferret, a tank of fish, and a teenage daughter living with her. Moe spent her springs and summers gardening in her yard and her falls and winters caring for her forest of houseplants.

Moe was happiest sitting and chatting with friends or family, on a porch, on a warm summer evening, in Rocky Nook or on the Cape.
