Maureen Ann (St. Laurent) Foss

Durham, NH – Maureen Ann (St. Laurent) Foss, 80, of Durham, NH, passed away peacefully with her family on December 29, 2021. Maureen was born on October 16, 1941 in Somersworth, NH to Benoit and Mary (O’Malley) St. Laurent.

She graduated from Somersworth High School in 1959, then pursued her goal of becoming a Registered Nurse, and graduated from Sacred Heart Nursing School in Manchester, NH in 1962.

Maureen loved being a nurse. With her compassion and kindness, she was able to help and comfort those in need. She began her career at Wentworth Douglass Hospital in Dover, NH, and after moving the family to Pittsfield, MA when Stephen joined General Electric, she continued nursing at a Pittsfield hospital. She then worked as a private nurse and at the end of her career worked in the hospice.

She also devoted a lot of time at home to looking after her three children. Some of her favorite pastimes are playing card games with friends, shopping, reading, crocheting Afghans for everyone, and mittens for the little ones. She enjoyed traveling and took several cruises with her husband Stephen.

Maureen’s absolute favorite pastime was spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She loved taking care of them when they were little and looked forward to family gatherings. Summers were special times with family reunions on Great East Lake in East Wakefield, NH.

Maureen has already passed away from her two parents, Benoit and Mary.

She leaves behind her 58-year-old husband Stephen D. Foss, son, James Foss from Sedona, AZ, son, Kevin Foss from S. Egremont, MA, daughter Kathleen Puchulu from Groton, MA, their eight grandchildren, and three grandchildren. She is also survived by her brothers David St. Laurent and Father Daniel St. Laurent.
