Genevieve L. Mooney of Sagamore, who was once a teacher in Bourne and Sandwich, died August 8. She was 100.

She was the widow of Mark Gregory Mooney. Her husband died in 1999.

Ms. Mooney was interviewed by an Enterprise reporter during the aftermath of a fierce March 2, 2018, northeaster storm, the first of three windy weather events that month.

At the time Ms. Mooney would be turning 97 years old in a few weeks, and she was eating mini-muffins and chatting with everyone who came by at the Bourne “warming center” at town hall two mornings later, as she waited for power to be restored to her house in South Sagamore.

She had spent the previous night at the shelter at Falmouth High School because she had no heat at home, and said she was happy to see some of her former pupils come in, such as Bourne selectman Peter J. Meier (whose father was also Ms. Mooney’s student).

She leaves her daughter and son-in-law, Jayne and Steven Hammond.

A memorial Mass will be said at Corpus Christi Church in East Sandwich at a later date.
