IIRC, it was a getting a bit mouldy up there and not much they seemed to be able to do about it. I very much doubt they could have moved it up and eventually re-occupied it. While sad to see it end it's orbital life, I suspect from the various "incidents" in its later life, it was becoming a death trap.
