Mary graduated from Athol High School in 1955. She had many different avenues of employment throughout her life's course and retired from the Board of Health in Fitchburg as a senior clerk. She was a former member of The Leominster Art Association, enjoyed going to the theater and loved to visit the beach.
Mom would always find the artist to be her most true self. Avid painter, floral arranger, cake decorator and crafter.
A surprisingly tenacious fighter, she took on every challenge and she will be sorely missed.
We would like to thank the Health Alliance Home & Hospice Nurses and the Montachusett Home Care program.
A private service will be held at a later date. The family requests no flowers.
