Maureen Moffat Wolfe died of lung cancer Oct. 9, 2012, in Thurmont, Md.

Born in Manhattan April 1, 1931, to Vincent and Kathleen (O’Reilly) Howley, she was a longtime resident of Southold, where she and her first husband, John W. Moffat, raised their five children.

Ms. Wolfe was employed by Southold Savings Bank and North Fork Bank. She had been a prominent member of North Fork Community Theatre since its infancy, involved in acting, directing and producing as well as makeup, costumes and sets — “whatever it took to get the show on,” according to family members.

In 1986 she moved to Virginia, where she continued to work in mortgage servicing. She married Thomas Wolfe in 1992 and they resided in Kensington, Md.

Ms. Wolfe was predeceased by her first husband, her sisters Patricia Wolfe and Eileen Higgins and a grandson. She is survived by her husband; her children, Sean and Greg Moffat, both of California, Brian Moffat of Massachusetts, Daria Moffat of Maryland and Tina Koslosky of Southold; eight grandchildren; and her sister Deirdre Howley of New York and New Mexico.

Graveside services will be held at St. Patrick Cemetery in Southold at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10. A private reception will follow. Inquiries may be made at [email protected]

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Friends of the National Zoo or the American Cancer Society.
