Maureen A. (Kelly) Bowser, “Moe,” 56, left us way too soon on Nov. 15 after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
She was best friend and soulmate to Kevin Bridge of Hopkinton. She was born in Marlborough, the daughter of the late George and Kathleen (Teahan) Kelly. She raised her family in Marlborough and resided in Hopkinton for the past 21 years.
Besides Kevin, she is survived by her son, Shawn Bowser of Hudson, her daughters, Shannon Bowser of Fall River and Sarah Bowser of Columbus, Georgia. She was predeceased by the children’s father, Dennis Bowser. She also is survived by her sister, Kathleen Kelly of Marlborough, and her brother, Kevin Kelly and wife Susan of Taunton. She also leaves her four grandchildren, Kasey, Maddy, Alex and Caleb, and many nieces and nephews who all loved and greatly adored her.
Maureen worked many years at the Digital/HP campus in the facilities organization, where she made lots of lifelong friends. Her more recent years were spent working in pharmaceuticals and information technology facilities where she developed friendships with many of her colleagues.
Moe especially enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, including many birthday celebrations at Embassy Suites. She treasured their many outings to Canobie Lake Park and all the holiday gatherings at the lake. Moe loved summer vacations to Hampton Beach and York Beach, but nothing beat the vacations she and Kevin took to Myrtle Beach each fall. She thoroughly loved living on the lake in Hopkinton — the recreational fun, kayaking and boat rides, the peaceful surroundings, the changes of seasons and the awesome sunsets. She made so many friends over the years — all of whom she truly loved.
Maureen will be most remembered for her infectious and contagious laugh, her big smile and her sincere generosity to everyone. She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.
At her request, and to honor her wishes, there will be no services at this time. A celebration of life may be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the care of the Short & Rowe Funeral Home in Marlborough.
Donations in her memory can be made to the American Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.
