Maureen Elaine (Madden) Bryan, 70, a resident of 40 years formerly of 13 Russet Lane, East Hampstead, N.H., daughter of the late James Madden and Louise (Brown) Madden, passed away peacefully, at Merrimack Valley Hospice House in Haverhill on May 29, 2017.
Born October 9, 1946, Maureen attended school in Denver, Colo. before moving to New Hampshire, and later working for the Laidlaw Bus Company in the Hampstead area, where she enjoyed driving schoolchildren each day.
Predeceased by her loving husband, Stephen R. Bryan, Maureen will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her two sons, Stephen Bryan and his companion, Judi Bellamore of North Andover, and Christopher Bryan of Daytona Beach, Fla.; her daughter, Deborah Bryan-Ducharme and her husband, John of East Hampstead, N.H.; brothers, James Madden of Nevada; and two sisters, Judy Moore and her husband, Thomas of Phoenix, and Janet Davis, also of Phoenix. Maureen leaves eight grandchildren, Jacquelyn A. Taylor, William J. White II, Mason J.

Taylor; three sisters in-law; and many nieces, nephews, and good friends. Maureen was predeceased by her brother Kenneth Madden.
Remembered for the love she showed to her grandchildren, she was also known as an avid reader, and enjoyed reading romance novels. Her trips to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, mark some of the most enjoyable times she traveled. She looked for the joy of life, and shared it with everyone she met.
