Audrey J. (Sears) MEGQUIER
September 23, 2020


Audrey J. Megquier (Sears) of Winthrop passed away on September 23, 2020 in the house she grew up in, at the age of 83. In recent weeks, she had many happy visits with family and friends and was attended to lovingly by her daughter Kelley. She was the loving daughter of the late Daniel and Helen (Fuller) Sears. She attended St. Lazarus School in East Boston and Mount Saint Joseph’s Academy in Brighton. Audrey was a legal secretary for the majority of her working life, most notably 23 years in the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.

Audrey was the devoted mother of Daniel H. Megquier of Dorchester, Lynda A. McDonough and her partner Ed Widomski of Port St. Lucie, FL, Kelley J. Megquier of Winthrop and Donna M. Megquier and her husband Jim Ohm of Waltham. She was the much beloved grandmother of Joseph McDonough, Daniel P. Megquier, Sean Taverna, and Madeleine and Lulu Ohm. Audrey was the dear sister of Daniel G. Sears of Warrenton, VA. She was the spoiler-in-chief of pups Boo, Izzy, and Bear.

Audrey’s talents were many and included crafting, cooking, and gardening. Her Christmas parties were as legendary as her sharp wit. Her grandchildren were the light of her life, and she spoiled them with Nana weekends of inappropriate movies, and trips to Toys 'R Us and Friendly’s.

Funeral services will be private and are being arranged by the Maurice W. Kirby Funeral Home, Winthrop. A celebration of her life is planned for the future. Contributions in her name can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 309 Waverly Oaks Road, Waltham, MA. 02452 or Care Dimensions Hospice Services, 75 Sylvan Street, Danvers, MA 01923.
