Claire L. Landrigan (McEnaney)

Claire Landrigan (McEnaney), age 91, of Canton MA passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Thursday October 27th, 2022. She was a lifelong resident of Canton, Ma. She attended St. John’s grade school in Canton and graduated from high school at Jeanne D’arc Academy Milton, Ma. From there she went onto Framingham State College. Claire grew up on High Street in Canton and with the exception of a year or so never left High Street. In 1958 Claire along with her husband Joe bought the house right next door to her parents, Mac and Helen. It was at 135 High Street where they raised their 3 daughters. Claire was the mother everyone would have wanted. She filled the house with love, laughter, compassion and a strong presence of God. Her devotion to the church was strongly instilled in her family. For many years she was an active member of the Canton Catholic Women’s Club and a eucharistic minister at St. John’s, Canton. She was a real people person and had so many lifetime friends. She enjoyed her Tuesday card group and Thursday Mah Jong group. Most importantly though was her family. She loved children and along with raising her own three, over the course of 8 years she took in 34 (Catholic Charity) babies. Always two at a time and upon entering the home you were often given a baby to hold along with a bottle! How she loved those babies! Claire had a wonderful sense of humor and could be quite the prankster. Even in her 80’s she and dear friend Blanche loved nothing better than to pull off a good joke on some poor unsuspected person. Claire loved life and treasured all those that were a part of her and she will be missed by so many.
Claire was predeceased by her beloved husband Joseph of 63 years. She was the daughter of the late Francis and Helen McEcaney and sister to Jean Buker, Lois Foss, and Robert McEnaney who predeceased her.
