Obituary

Maureen H. (Morin) Philbin of Attleboro, MA passed away on the evening of October 24, 2022 at her home, surrounded by her loving family. Mrs. Philbin was 83 years old. She was the wife of the late Paul (Tim) Philbin.

Born on February 7, 1939 in Central Falls, RI, Maureen was the daughter of the late Lionel and Victoria (Kwolek) Morin. Maureen married the love of her life, Tim, with whom she had 5 children and 8 grandchildren. After growing up in Central Falls and Pawtucket, and moving through New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island (twice), Maureen and Tim retired to Twin Mountain, NH, where they lived for 15 years before relocating to Attleboro.

Maureen dedicated herself to raising her children. After the birth of her their 5th child, Maureen went back to school and became a Registered Nurse. She applied her care-giving skills at Cardi’s Nursing Home and as a visiting nurse. After she retired, Maureen spent 6 years as the Town Librarian in Twin Mountain. She loved being an integral part of the town community.

Maureen enjoyed life and certainly made the most of it. She loved traveling, from visiting Cape Cod as a child, camping, trips to Hawaii and Las Vegas, and many road trips to Florida. Maureen also enjoyed reading (she was an avid Stephen King fan), listening to 1950’s rock n’ roll, watching movies, going to casinos and would never miss her weekly card games in Twin Mountain. She loved to go snowmobiling and was a member of a snowmobiling club for many years. Maureen loved to cook for her family and friends; nobody would ever leave her house with an empty stomach, whether she made you something from scratch or you dipped into the always-full cookie jar. No matter where they lived, in a camper or a 15 room Inn, Maureen’s love and sprit made it Home, where everyone would always feel welcome. She was a devout and faithful Catholic and made sure to let everyone close to her know that they were in her prayers.

Along with her husband, Maureen is reunited with her daughter, the late Tracy Philbin Vadnais. She is survived by her loving children; Sharon Philbin of Seekonk, MA, Jeffrey Philbin of West Union, South Carolina, Tim Philbin of Pawtucket, RI and Nicholas Philbin of Worcester, MA. Mrs. Philbin was the proud grandmother of 8 grandchildren: Victoria Dower, Timothy Dower, Madeline Vadnais, Nicolas Philbin, Rachel Bennett, Alison Philbin, Erin Vadnais and Marina Philbin. She was the sister of the late Robert Morin.

Calling Hours will be held from 5-7pm  on Tuesday November 1st in The Coelho Home 151 Cross St. Central Falls. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 am on Wednesday November 2nd at St. Teresa’s Catholic Church 18 Baltic St. South Attleboro. Burial will follow in Notre Dame Cemetery 359 Daggett Ave. Pawtucket.
