Maureen Oates passed away on July 3, 2020. Mrs. Oates was an editor, an environmentalist, and an educator. Earth Circles, a religious education curriculum she co-authored, was published by the Unitarian Universalist Association. Working in watercolor and other media, she was also an artist who helped to found and sustain The Gallery@First Parish.
A Memorial Service will take place later, perhaps near the time of Mrs. Oates’s birthday in December.
