Condolence & Memory Journal

It is with deep sadness that I write to extend my sympathies to all of you, Mary's family. I met Mary when we studied for our PhD at Simmons and have been a long distance friend for all these years. As you know, Mary was a bright and knowing woman with a keen perspective on life. She was so proud of all her children and grandchildren. I will miss her calming voice and reasoned perspective. It was an honor to have known her.

I CAME TO REALLY KNOW YOUR MOTHER DURING MY VISIT WITH HER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS AT HER HOME IN WEST NEWTON. I ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD TO SHE AND I SHARING OUR FAMILY MEMORIES. I EVEN LEARNED A LOT ABOUT MY HUSBAND THROUGH THE EYES OF HIS SISTER. SHE WAS A EMARKABLE WOMAN.

I worked with Mary years ago at Catholic Charities. She was the consummate professional. She supported her staff while challenging us to improve our clinical practice. I learned a lot from Mary and have great respect for her skills as a clinical director. My deepest sympathies to her family.

She was terrific when I came to BC in 1969. Huge fun to be around, well organized and had a lot of compassion for those around her.

I met Mary when I first came to teach at BC in 1977. She was a wonderful, loving person then and she remained so throughout the 40 years I have been here. It is sad to think that she is no longer among us. My condolences to her children and grandchildren
