OBITUARY:
Maura S. Shaughnessy-Drawbaugh, 47, died suddenly on Saturday, December
1st, following a brief illness at the Tallahassee Memorial Health Center in
Tallahassee, Florida. She was the wife of Jeff Drawbaugh and mother of
Thomas E. Drawbaugh, both of Tallahassee. Born in Woburn, she was the

Woburn, attended Woburn public schools and graduated from Woburn High
School with the class of 1973. She held a deep love and affection for her
native city of Woburn and lived here until just six years ago when she and her
family relocated to Tallahassee.
For many years, Maura worked for the City of Woburn, serving both the
Treasurer's Office and Fire Department. The bright light and warmth of her
compassionate nature and wonderfully quick wit was infectious to all those
around her. More than anything else, Maura was devoted to being a loving
mother to her son, Tommy. The deep love and tender care with which she
nurtured the relationship with her son is where she found the most joy during
her lifetime. It was a rare occasion to see her anywhere without Tommy.
The two traveled back to Woburn each year to celebrate Christmas at the
Shaughnessy home on Scott Street, and enjoyed spending time with family
and friends. She last visited Woburn in August to surprise her family and
uncle, Henry Shaughnessy, and join in a celebration marking Henry's fifty
