Mary Moynihan Obituary, Death – Wednesday’s storms resulted in the death of a woman when a tree that had fallen onto her SUV caused the vehicle to crash. The Sunapee School District has now determined the woman who passed away to be who she was. On Wednesday evening about 6:30 o’clock, a tree on Route 11 near Trow Hill Road was responsible for the passing of 22-year-old Mary Moynihan.

The tree was in the path of Moynihan’s Toyota Rav4, which was struck by the tree.
Moynihan is the daughter of Sean Moynihan, who is currently serving as the administrator of Sunapee Middle/High School, according to Russell Holden, who is the Superintendent of Schools. Moynihan herself is a teacher at Sunapee Middle/High School.

“We must share the sad news with you that our school community was recently affected by a devastating loss, and it is with heavy hearts that we do so. It was announced late last night that Mary Moynihan, the daughter of Sean and Amy Moynihan, had passed away unexpectedly “Holden spoke with the parents through written correspondence.

Mary Moynihan recently received her bachelor’s degree in business and economics from the University of New Hampshire’s Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics. She had just finished her shift at Fidelity Investments and was on her way home when she was hit and killed by a vehicle.

A resident of Sunapee named Michael Grimes provided the following description of the community: “a community that is very, very small and has a strong sense of community. In this area, there is a significant deal of familiarity among the locals with one another.”

Holden has claimed that the crisis intervention team at the school will be able to assist children who require or wish assistance in coping with the death of a loved one.

Holden gave the family the following response: “We are heartbroken by the loss to our school community and will make every attempt to assist you and your child in any capacity you require.” Holden was expressing his sorrow about the death of a member of the school community.

The intersection was inaccessible for a period of time, but by the early hours of Thursday morning, drivers were able to resume their typical patterns of behavior.
