Maria Champoux Obituary

Maria Domenica Champoux, affectionately known as "Re", was called home by our Lord Jesus Christ on March 29, 2024. Born on September 30, 1943, in the quaint town of Chiusano di San Domenico in the Province of Avellino, Italy, Maria was a spirited soul who lived life to the fullest. Her vivacious personality was evident from her early years, where she danced her way to being known as “Best Dancer” in Revere High School Class of 1963. After high school, Maria and her husband, Ronnie, made homes in Somerville and Kingston, Massachusetts, then settled back in Revere. Still, her heart always held a special place for her birthplace, Avellino, Italy.

Maria was a resilient woman who faced life's challenges with determination and grace. She spent many years working as a Patient Accounts Representative for Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare, showcasing her care and dedication to those she served. Maria’s creativity was best expressed through her love for knitting, crocheting, crafts, gardening, and making beautiful bows for weddings and all holidays. Her vibrant gardens were a testament to her love for life and the beauty it holds. Maria found joy in the simplest of things - a shopping trip to Marshalls, getting a manicure or pedicure, leaf-peeping, or attending a Boston Celtics game. Her love for Doo-Wop music and travel took her to many concerts, musicals, and corners of the world. Maria’s love for the beach, sunbathing, and water fountains was a reflection of her free spirit.

Maria was a loving wife to Ronald Champoux, a doting mother to her daughters, Noelle Champoux and Danielle Champoux Bohnke, and a cherished mother-in-law to Nathan Bohnke. Her love extended to her grandchildren - Lilly and Bennett Olson and Travis Bohnke, as well all her granddogs, Louis and Ruby, to whom she snuck many a treat. She is survived by all of them including her brother, Mario Meriano, and her sister, Angelina Harrington, and many in-laws, nieces, and nephews. Maria was preceded in death by her parents, Carmine and Morosa Meriano, and her brothers Walter Iandolo and Michael, Carmine, and Anthony Meriano, as well as her grandson, Gavin Bohnke. Her love was immeasurable, and what mattered most to her were her family, close friends, neighbors, gardening, and cooking. She was often asked to bring salad with her famous homemade dressing to family events.

Everyone loved Maria - her spirit was infectious, and her resilience was admirable. Her life was a testimony to her creative, loving, and spirited nature. We invite you to share your memories, stories, and pictures of Maria on her memorial page. Your recollections and photos will serve as a tribute to the wonderful woman that she was and will continue to bring smiles to our faces as we remember her.
