Maureen Ellen (O’Toole) Jones Middleton, 77, passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by the comfort of her loving family Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2020.

She was the daughter of the late Martin Thomas and Margaret Elizabeth (Harrington) O’Toole.

Maureen was born April 3, 1943 in Boston and was a graduate of Catherine Laboure School of Nursing in Dorchester, MA, in 1964.

She enjoyed 25-plus years providing direct patient care in hospital and clinic settings before transitioning to the consulting side of nursing where she was employed at several companies, including MobilexUSA, Mobile Medical Radiology & EKG, and US Laboratories & Radiology, for another 25 years.

Nursing was Maureen’s passion, and for anyone who knew her, it was a fitting profession and one that introduced her to lifelong friends. Maureen was defined by her strength, selflessness, and compassion, and she had an incredible love for her family and friends. She experienced many hardships in her life, and because she faced these head-on and overcame them with grace, she was widely loved, admired, and respected.
