Maureen Cagiano, a long-time Southern Shores resident, died at home on Thursday, February 17, 2011. Maureen was 88 years old.
Maureen was born and raised on the Island of Holyhead in North Wales, United Kingdom where she met her husband, Anthony “Andy” Cagiano, an American GI who served during WWII in the U.S. Army Air Corps. Maureen emigrated to the United States with Andy, and the two settled in College Park, Maryland where Maureen earned her United States citizenship and as a multi-tasking homemaker, raised three sons in a warm and loving home.
Over the years Maureen enjoyed employment with several companies in many different capacities, but she valued her role as the backbone of her family most of all.
After retiring with her husband to the Outer Banks in 1980, Maureen expended her energies serving others. She volunteered her time with HOTLINE, the Baum Senior Center, the Dare County Library, and she was also one of the founders of the Southern Shores Volunteer Fire Department’s Rescue 12 Rehab.

Many extended family members, co-workers, and friends are also left with wonderful memories of their friend Maureen Cagiano.
