Maude M. Neptune

June 19, 1946 — April 13, 2021

Waltham – Mrs. Maude M. Neptune, of Waltham, died Tuesday, April 13, 2021 at her home. She was 74.

Maude was born in Jacmel, Haiti, on June 19, 1946, the daughter of Solon and Morilia (Gaston) Mondesir. She was raised in Haiti and moved to the United States with her children after her late husband Andre Neptune passed away in 1990. In Haiti she was a schoolteacher, and after immigrating to the United States she went back to school to receive her associates degree and became a nurse.

She was always helping others, loving, smart, and valued hard work and education. This made her a great teacher and nurse, and more importantly, it's what made her a wonderful mother and grandmother. She enjoyed baking and gardening, and loved to spend time with her family, especially the time spent spoiling her grandchildren.

She Leaves her children, Jean-Remy Neptune and wife Guerline Neptune of Manchester, New Hampshire, Mychell Neptune-Buon and husband Leutz of Randolph, and Phara Neptune of Waltham; her grandchildren, Elijah, Caleb, Emile, Nathaniel, Eliyah, Okiyanaeh, Nayeliaeh, Gilead, Azariah, and Nazaiyah; her brothers, Jean-Claude Mondesir of Waltham, Hughes Mondesir of Jacmel, Haiti, Berthony Mondesir of Jersey City, NJ and the late Efton Mondesir, and many nieces and nephews.

Family and friends will honor and remember Maude's life by gathering for calling hours on Friday, April 23rd from 5 to 8 p.m. in The Joyce Funeral Home, 245 Main Street (Rte. 20), Waltham. Her Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. in Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted Church, 880 Trapelo Road, Waltham. Burial will follow in Mount Feake Cemetery, Waltham.

To view Maude's Funeral Mass please visit: on Saturday, April 24th, at 10 a.m.

A note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:

During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.

Telephone your friend to offer words of love and support, give them a virtual hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.

These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.

When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.

It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.

Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in some places of worship will also be private. Most services, at the family's request, will also be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.

During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance.

Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
